I was privileged to have met Frank several years ago as he started to attend Community Bible Study. Over the years, I never knew him to have missed a night. I am saddened by his leaving but have many wonderful memories of his faithfulness and his stories of his grand children and gardening.

So sorry for your loss. I have such good memories of ?helping?work on the house on Marlene and exploring the treasures in the garage. I still think of him when I use that trick he taught me of closing one eye at night when turning on a light so you keep night vision in the other. He was a wonderful man and no doubt be missed by many.
