Frank Jr., Carrie, Stacie, Chris and families,
What can be said about such a loving and caring Father and friend to all he meet? It has been many years since I have had the honor of seeing your father but the memories are as vivid as if they were just yesterday. He was a man that cared above all about his family but was also there for anyone that needed his help.
The world has lost a man that showed his loved of family not by words alone but by action. It should be every man's hope to follow the example of your father.
May time only deepen you loving memories of Uncle Frank.
With fond and loving memories,
Mike Nysewander and family

I will never say goodbye to you my sweet Daddy because I know this is not the end for us to see each other.You will only be going to a place where there's no pain nor suffering.I am happy for you, for you will be with God. and Mom has Been waiting on you..For now we need to go in separate ways.I remember how your arms held me and gave me strength.You were always there to listen, love, and defend me in everything.You were my very best friend. In my triumphs you were always proud.I'm very greatful and proud to call you my dad.Here deep inside my heart you'll always be.I would give up everything I have just to hug you one more time.I remember the last time I held you're hand and how you looked at me with such peace If only I could turn back the time I would have never let you go.I felt the world stop and my heart stopped beating when they told me you were gone…….How I wish I was only dreaming.Just like the rain; tears fell down from my eyes, I couldn't speak for a while. Thank you Dad…. For always understanding, listening , caring, and loving me for the rest of your life.The greatest gift God gave me was YOU…….. my Dad…It's difficult to let you go but I must…I must return the gift God gave me…Till then;See you in Heaven………My Dear Sweet Daddy...

What fun it was to work for and with Capt. Bubba. 20 years have passed and I can still hear him saying,"Suit me up a team." He didn't "play" with the "boys" and we loved that about him. We loved his sense of humor and respected his sense of duty. I am glad he was one of my TDC mentors. Stay as strong as he would be. Karla Stewart
