ADD A MEMORY
Herb and Lila Tyler

November 7, 2018

We were saddened today to read that your Mom had passed away. We both had very close relationships with Dr. Frank in Furman classrooms during the early 50's. (Great teacher!!!!). Imagine our excitement when we moved back to Greenville and realized that we were neighbors. We enjoyed seeing and visiting with both of them. As his health began to fail it was our pleasure to get to know her and what a lovely, caring lady she was. As we assisted her from time to time she was always appreciative.
Lila and I agree that she is one individual that we would like to emulate as we grow older. We still missed her when she moved to Charlotte and we will continue to do so. Our memories of her (and Him) will live on as two very special, loving and caring individuals. Her memory will live on as one of our very special friends and as a role model for us to model our
lives as we continue relationships with the many special friends that we enjoy here in Greenville. Please share our greetings and sympathy with Flossie, Frank, and all of the Bonner clan. Herb Tyler
