Bernie & Family,
Very sorry to hear about Frank's passing. I did not know him, but
he sure must have been a great father and sports fan. He passed
much too soon, and gave his free time to help others. His family
will always miss him.
His favorite football team is a real winner, too.
May he rest in Peace.

To all the Senerths - I was saddened to read in the Courant of Frank’s passing. I haven’t seen Frank in 15 years or so, but was struck at that time by how much he resembled his Dad, yet still looked like his childhood self - unruly blonde hair.
I hope at this sad time that you are lifted by the happy and loving memories of Frank as your son, husband, father and brother.

To the family of Frank I am so sorry for your lose. I spent many football and cheerleading games sitting near Frank cheering on our kids at the fields. He was always smiling and enjoying watching Doug and Olivia in action. Those days and all the special memories that each of us have are the ones that should be cherished for years so when you speak his name his smile comes through.
