Words can not explain the sadness I’ve had since you’ve been gone . I thought so highly of you and looked up to you. You always brought a smile to my face . You were a great man and even better friend. I love you man and I’ll miss you everyday.

I would have never of been ready for you to go. But I know you did your best to prepare me... and I am forever grateful for that. I have so many wonderful memories to hold onto and to cherish. You always loved me for who I was and who I strived to be. I am so proud to call you my dad and I couldn’t have asked for a better one. I miss you so much already and I can’t wait to see your big goofy grin again. I know you are already fishing with Frankie in heaven. This life is so short. I know you got to do everything you wanted to do. I just wish I got to do more with you here. But we will get to spend eternity together in Heaven. I hope the angels know what they have Dad ❤️
I’ll see you again. Love you with all my heart.

Frank we always called you our brother from another mother. We will miss you dearly. We are so sorry you didn't get to sit on the porch of the log cabin for coffee...but we'll have "Frank's chair" there in your memory.
We feel so honored to have known you and Frankie, just wish it could've been longer.
There are few real and genuine people in this world and you're one of them.
We love you Frank and will never forget you. We are so glad that you and Frankie are fishing in God's lake, catching nothing but big ones
