ADD A MEMORY
Glenn Rosilier

I can remember when Frank and James would take to the road to visit siblings. On several occasions it was to my mom's (Maria). No one smiled as much as Frank, but mom, as soon as she found out they were coming; she would immediately go into her smile with giggling, like the young days growing up together. The smiled stay many days after they had left. I can in all honestly say, that every time I had the pleasure to be around Frank, it was a real joy. My guess, my godfather, uncle Frank is now the greeter at the pearly gates.
I love the tribute, the family captured how I remember uncle Frank. I am so sorry for the families' loss, but I am glad he is now in heaven; I can see the smile on mom's face, when she found out he was on his way.
All of our love to uncle Frank and his family.

The world is a much less goofy place without our Paw Paw Frank Herzog here in it. He will always be the most soft and gentle man I have known in my life (sorry Dad--he let me get a way with a heck of a lot more than you did).

I will never forget the way Paw Paw laughed with his whole dang body, it was as if his joy couldn't be contained on his own and had to be seen to be shared with those around him. He was able to make you feel wholly loved simply by sitting at your side and exuding nothing but warmth, even in his silence. And no matter how many years he had in his belt, he was the first person to blow his straw wrapper at us when we sat down to dinner.

The great love of his life, our Mee Mee Martha, left us in 2007 and with her went the wholeness of his heart. Like Marilyn said to me earlier, 'it did break his heart and it's a miracle it ticked on so many years after.' Witnessing the depth of their love could inspire the greatest love story that has yet to be told. We have all missed Martha for years now, and as we grieve our loss of Frank, we can find solace in knowing that he has finally found his way back to her side.

We were all much better off with Paw Paw Frank in our lives, but we're all much better people for having known him too.

And on a goofier note; it also seems worth mentioning that my first ever memory of Whataburger was shared over a chorizo taquito with my Paw Paw Frank. God bless him for that!

The world is a much less goofy place without Paw Paw Frank Herzog in it. He will always be remembered as the softest and most gentle man in my life (sorry Dad--he did let me get away with a bit more and also yelled at me less).

The way Paw Paw would always laugh with his whole body lit up any room, and he had an uncanny ability to make you feel loved simply by sitting at your side. I will miss Paw Paw being there to blow his straw wrapper at my face every time we went out to eat as a family. His heart shattered when he lost his greatest love, our MeeMee Martha, and Marilyn noted 'it is a miracle it ticked so much longer after that.' The love he had for his Martha ran so deep it could inspire the greatest love story that has yet to be written. We have all missed Martha so greatly, and as we begin to grieve Frank, we can find solace in knowing that he is finally finding his way back to her. We were all much better off having him in our lives, but also we're all much better people because we have known him.

P.S. I think it's worth an extra shoutout to Paw Paw for being the first person to take me to a Whataburger for a chorizo taquito.

Still can see Frank and my dad (Shelby) visiting at out house. They worked together for years at Conoco, Inc. Frank was a very interesting man and always had a lot to say. We were all excited when he married Martha and they had a great life. I am sad for the loss of Frank as I considered him to be family. Prayers for all his family today and always. Due to health issues I will not be able to make the graveside services but you will all be on my mind.

The last of an amazing family of 12 children and two wonderful grandparents. They are all celebrating together now. Much love and prayers to you all.
