Dear Janie,

When talking with Sandy yesterday, she told me about Franks passing.  I realize it must be very difficult for you at this time.  Please know that you and the rest family are in my prayers and thoughts.

Gods love to all of you,

Jane, some time ago I ran into Frank at the Kuehne Branch of the YMCA.  I recall our conversation now with special appreciation because he was so cheerful and upbeat.  I think that is a wonderful way to be remembered, and I send my condolences to you and your family.

Jane, my heart is so sad for you.  I am so glad I got to visit with Frank at our reunion. He was always so much fun. You two have been together forever and my prayers go out to you in your loss.  I'm remembering back to good times after TR Jr High ball games at our house on Woodlawn, and at your home on Greenwood.  Some fun memories from our youth.  Martha Guild Neukomm

Dear Janae,

My heart goes out to you.  Such a loss is really difficult to live with.  I know from experience that you will feel it every day.  Please accept the comfort of all your friends who love you and Frank and know that he will be missed by all.  I remember our last conversation.  He was so helpful to me; giving me advice about mobility chairs.  I was really grateful for his advice.  He was so upbeat. Living with him must have a wonderful experience.  May God belss and comfort you as you wait to join Frank.

Hi Janie,  -  it's so hard to think that Frank is gone.  He was such a great guy to be around.  I love seeing everyone's comments here, how very liked he was by everybody.  He was just an "everbody" kind of a guy.  I always smiled when I  saw him, because he was so ready to smile and share that genuine, infectious laugh of his.  And talk about soulmates - you two take the cake!  You were so lucky, Jane, but that must make it doubly hard too.   Take care, and please stay in touch.  Love you!     Diane (Lea)

Dear Janie, I was so sorry to hear about Frank's passing. I remember you both from Roosevelt Jr Hi. I didn't make it back for the reunion but I wish I had. I know from first hand experience what its like to lose your spouse. I'm glad you got to have so many wonderful years together. May God comfort you with His presence. Your friend, Carol Massey Abney

I remember going to high school, THS, class of 62, with Frank.  Was such an outgoing fellow and liked another classmate of mine Janie Edmunston.  Hope I got the spelling right, Jane.  Nice to know that the two of you did get together and marry and had a long, happy, and good life.  I am facebook friends with Jane now and she misses you and will love you forever.  Rest in peace, Frank.
