I know that it is not easy to say goodbye to someone whom you love so dearly but we are reminded by God's promise that it will only be for awhile. Frank's brave and courageous fight til the end gives me insipration to face the day and the love that was shown to him by his family lets me know that he was a great inspiration to many as well. My love to Oralia and Angela and the rest of the family as they will go through this difficult journey.

I pray the Lord provides the Lopez family with peace, comfort, tranquility at this time of sorrow.
It was an honor knowing Br.Frank the 1st day i met him he was already being funny and very loving. There are many great things that i can sit here and say about Br. Frank but for now all i can say is that 1 day we will see each other again.
He will be dearly missed but his job as a servant was well done.

I will continue praying for the Lopez Family...
We will dearly miss Br. Frank...

A thought of comfort and condolences to the Lopez family. Frank was my first supervisor in the fire department. He guided and mentored many of us and made us better firefighters. Chief Lopez always had my six and for that I will always be grateful. It was an honor to serve alongside Chief Lopez but more importantly Frank was a good friend.

There is so much about Frank that was great, so many memories, serving together at Church, Home for the Homeless, other Mission trips and his military service to our country. He wore many hats and was a wonderful influence to our children and grandchildren. May the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times and in every way. We are praying for all of you.
Eloy & Marylou and family.
