Brother Roberson always asked me about my Daddy and I will cherish that memory. Now they are in heaven together. Those two loved the Lord. They will be missed but never forgotten.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Miss Ivalee. You were truly blessed with an amazing husband who clearly loved you with all his heart.

I've known Frank and Ivalee since I was a boy. They have always been wonderful spiritual examples. I cherish knowing them. Frank will be missed so by Ivalee and the rest of his family, as well as so many who knew him to be a kind, caring, and giving person. He lived his faith and he has kept that faith until the end. Great is his reward.

"When the Bulldogs kick off the season Aug. 31, Frank will be there in spirit. Frank was a great American who valiantly defended his country in World War II. Most of all, he loved his Lord. He was a great friend who will be sorely missed."

"I know when the Bulldogs kick the season off Aug. 31 at Clemson this year, Frank will be there in spirit. He was a great American and a valiant soldier who defended our country well in World War II. And, most of all, a great friend who loved the Lord."
