Dear Frank Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Your Dad was a good man. I liked him from the first time we said hello all those years ago. What a great time we had celebrating Ken's retirement. He was so proud of his son and his accomplishments. May you find peace and comfort in all the good memories. God bless and keep you.
