Words cannot express the heartbreak I feel for my cousin Janice and her family for the loss of Frankie. We love you and are praying for each of you!
Frankie what can I say that hasn’t already been said...you were definitely one of a kind! Loving, giving, funny, competitive, with a compassionate heart and a love for kids! All my girls love you and my boys as well. They will all remember riding your horses and you making them feel special. Thanks for sharing your time with them. You will always be missed. Until we meet again, rest easy my friend! Love Phil and Dorothy Fowler

Frankie will be missed. My sister LaShonda and I love to ride the horses. We used to live next door at our parents house, and Frankie always asked my parents about "The girls"

Rest in Peace Frankie!

Dear Ms. Susie, Janice, Jeremy & rest of family,
Even though our dear friend , Frankie was expected to pass away it’s never easy. We are so sorry that we weren’t able to be there to show our love & support to y’all during this sad & difficult time; but we’re out of the state. You know how much Frankie meant to us....we grew up together (your family & ours); he had a great sense of humor, joking around all the time, and had a heart of gold! I prayed he wouldn’t suffer & so thankful God took him on Home where he’ll no longer be in pain; he’ll most certainly be missed by us all! Ms. Susie and Janice we hope to see you both very soon.
Our love & prayers,
Allen, Wanda & Kendall

My Frankie
So many memories, I will never forget how mad you were when Rebel threw me...lol You came and spent a few days to find out what his problem was. So me you and Daddy headed out. It was a beautiful Thursday in September, sun was bright not a cloud in sight. We had just left the river on our way in and bam pouring rain. It was raining so hard we could not see. We ran and we ran hard. But I was in so much pain, so we slowed down. Daddy of course left us but he got under a tree and waited for us and I know he was waiting for you Tuesday. Hook his buggy up rite...lol Tell him I love him and I love you!
Your favorite

From that day on Frankie said if Dixie saddles up it's gone rain...lol

Aunt Janice and Uncle Frankie,

My family and I love you two to the moon and back! So special are you, Aunt Janice and Uncle Frankie, to us. My mind is full of the fond memories that I have with the both of you in them and thanks to your loving hearts this continued on for my children. Thank you for that:)

Uncle Frankie,
We will never forget our favorite Uncle Frankie!

In fact, I have often thought of how I would like to be more like you. No, I’m not kidding. I want to be as loving and as kind as you were to everyone, no matter their circumstance. You will always be a role model for me in that way.

We have lost a beautiful person in you, but me and mine will always remember and honor you.

Timeless love, Brooke
