Faye and Frankie, I am so sorry to hear of Frank's passing. He was a great friend that I knew for many years at Concord. His smile was contagious and he always made visitors to church feel welcome. He will be there to greet all of us with a smile as each of us enters Heaven one day to worship together once again.

The first time I ever did any work for Frank I was in high school. We were moving some boxes and furniture around for a couple hours and after he paid me he gave me a $40.00 tip. At the time I remember telling him that he overpaid me and he said, "No I didn't, That's yours." I had never worked for anyone in my life that had been that generous to me. Little did I know, that would be the first of many projects that Garrett and I would take on for him. Whether it was moving boxes, cutting grass or washing chemicals out of 200 gallon drums in Dalton - Frank was always generous. His generosity and character have significantly shaped the way I view and interact with the world. What a privilege to have known Frank Fuller, he has indeed made me a better man. One of the other most fond memories I have of Frank is how he always said, "Y'all be careful." Anytime I was ever around him he said those words at some point. There was always something deeply sincere with how consistently he said those words.

The first time I visited Concord I was greeted by Frank and his constant friendly smile. I observed him over the years and saw him welcome so many with warmth and joy. He will be replaced with someone but no one can replicate his genuine and uplifting manner. He set the standard for cheerfully greeting friends and visitors alike. The Concord body has lost a big man with a servants heart and I have lost a friend that always cheered me by his presence.

What a gift it was to know Mr. Fuller! When I was in high school, I was asked to be an usher for Concord Baptist Church. Mr. Fuller took me under his wing and showed me what the job entailed. Mr. Fuller definitely showed me how to serve others. He opened the door for everyone and greeted them with a wave, high five, or firm handshake. I was always amazed how he knew everyone's name. He had a special gift of making you feel comfortable and relaxed. He could carry on a conversation with anyone and was a true people person. He always said make sure you smile and greet them and ask them how they are doing, because they should feel welcomed and excited to come to church. I have no doubt that Mr. Fuller was welcomed into heaven with a smile and excited to go to church with his Heavenly Father!
