Aunt Rickie,
I received a note from Aunt Mary Reynolds about Uncle Frank's passing. I will always remember your kindness when we visited, whether in Fort Lauderdale, or in Kentucky during the few family reunions we were able to attend. I, too, enjoyed reading Uncle Frank's two books - his life in the service and the other about his life growing up. He will be missed and I offer my sincerest condolences.

Much Love,

Aunt Rickie,
Mom called me to let me know about Uncle Frank. I wish I could come to the funeral but I cannot. I will be praying for God's comfort for you and Ray and Rob and their families. I called the house and left a message. I will call again later when things calm down. I will miss Uncle Frank. I will never forget visiting you both the year after dad died. Uncle Frank was showing me a book of pictures and I was mesmerized by his hands as he turned the pages. It was like watching dad. I will miss hearing his voice too. I know he had a hard time lately hearing on the phone. I think I will get out the book he wrote and reread it. It is almost like hearing him talk. The book is such a treasure. I am thankful he took the time to write it.

God bless you, Feel free to call me anytime.
Love you,
