My heart is broken over the loss of my wonderful friend, Frank. I first met Frank 3 years ago when my parents moved into St. Paul's Apartments.
He was instantly one of my favcrite people there. Always smiling, always joking, always asking me if I was moving in, because I was there almost every day visiting my parents. I still cannot believe that he was 91. He looked and acted at least 20 years younger. I will miss him saying "what did you say?" and cupping his ear like he didn't hear me, whenever I gave him a compliment. And who could ever forget his laugh - it was the best! It gives me peace to know that he has been reunited with his wife. He always told me that he was ready to go and that Heaven must be a pretty nice place, because a lot of his friends and his wife went there and they didn't come back. I'm praying that you will feel God's loving arms wrapped around you and holding you close in the days and weeks ahead. Heaven is a brighter and happier place now that Frank has arrived! Rest in peace, my dear friend.

Frank was a great friend and neighbor. I'm glad I had the opportunity to visit with Frank at Memorial before his passing. Frank had a great sense of humor and always made me laugh. When we were neighbors Frank would have me and my husband cut his grass
and after he moved we then bought his house. I went to see Frank on a couple of occasions at his St. Paul apartment and he would still ask if the grass was cut and he would also say "How's your old man" referring to my husband. So yes Frank we're still cutting the grass and taking good care of the house and my "old man" is doing good and still working hard everyday. It was a great honor to know Frank and we will miss him but I know he's home with Vicky now and he is happy.
Sincerely, Paul and Mary Drumm
