  4. Papaw Frank,
    We love you and miss you terribly! Thank you for 27 years of wonderful memories in my life- you were a loving grandfather to me. Grant will always be reminded of his great-grandfather that he only knew for 2 short years, but grew to love dearly. Your memory will always be kept alive! I love you forever and know that I will see you again one day! Char

  5. Papaw, I’m going to miss you… Thank you for being there for Granny Bob and I’ll never forget you. I love you with all my heart and wish you were still with us, but I know your in a better place now. I love you… and I’ll see you in Heaven.
    Love Josh

  6. I believe in loving embraces, in promises and lingering good-byes. You will always be special in my heart. Love to all left behind.

  7. I was sorry to hear about Frank. He was a good person and fun to be around. I remember the first time I met Frank in Atlanta. He was one of those people that you like immediatly. He treated this vagabond with the same cheerful respect as the mayor of the city. Later, i enjoyed visiting Frank when he lived in Florida. I still have the Kitchen knives that Frank gave me when he was in the wholesale business. I will try to visit soon Bobbie. We tend to think that there is always going to be time to visit again later, but too often that is not the case………..ONLY THE ROCKS ARE FOREVER.

  8. Ray,
    Sorry for your Loss, our condolences to you & the rest of the Family.Take care.
    Betty Jo & Family

  9. Papaw, I really miss you. I know that you are looking down on us and wishing that we could be there with you so we could also enjoy that wonderful place. You will be one of the first people I look for when I get there. You are always going to be in my heart and I will never forget you. This is not a goodbye……I’ll see you later!

    I love you!!!
    Traci Queen
