I worked with Frank at the county a couple of summers when I was in college. He was very good to me. To the family my prayers are with you.

To the Smith family, I'm so sorry for your loss. Frank was such a good person and I enjoyed being able to work with him for many years. You and the family will be in our prayers.

Meeting Frank and Earline truly was a privilege I will always remember, Mike has shared many stories of the Smith family growing up with Frank and Earline leading the family in all sorts of situations. What a blessing that must have been. We would stop by on our bikes and Frank would always greet me with a hearty "Hello John, how ya doing." He always had something positive to say. May God rest his soul and give Earline peace in her heart knowing Frank will be sitting at the right hand of God watching the family continue life with pride and confidence.

God bless you Frank
until we meet again.
