Cary,
Please accept my condolences on the passing of your father.
Frank and I work together for years. He was great to work with and he was also a great friend. We worked some long hard hours together, but working with him was fun.

Dear Cary, Lex and family,

I'm very sorry for the loss of your beloved Dad.

Cary, I remember that time he let you and me build a little house in your back yard. He even gave us paint to dress it up a little. We were barely big enough to swing a hammer, but he let us go at it.

May God grant him eternal rest.
