Frank was my football coach at Devereux . All of us who knew him esteemed him greatly.

On the film it was very appropriate the restful walk through the woods - it reminded me of the summer of 1963 when he took some of us for a weekend at Baker's Ranch near Burnet. It was also great one again seeing the photo of the canoe trip with Kathy Agnellof and Coco Nelson.

I remember Frank's picture boating down the Guadalupe with Richard Danko and Jim Whitley, that was on the cover of Life Magazine. Does that photo still exist?

Frank will always be in our prayers. "Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. Take him to a place of happiness, light and peace."
