Frank and Joann are dear friends in Christ. I loved them like parents since mine passed away before I was 36. Frank had a quiet and strong spirit. He loved the Lord, he spoke what was on his mind and shared from the heart and his long life experiences.

Although I spoke of keeping in touch these past years, I did not and for that I am sad. I know he is celebrating and praising the Lord right now and for that I am grateful.

With love and hugs to Joann and her dear family.
