Dear Cheryl & Family,

May I extend to you all my deepest sympathies, and to let you know I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I was really sorry to read of Frank’s passing. I remember how much help he gave Jerry when we were adding lights in our cellar. He didn’t let Jerry get off the hook by watching. He made him do a lot of the work himself; that in itself was a small miracle. Jerry wasn’t a projects kind of guy. He was a teacher that week! God bless you all!

So very sorry of the heartache and pain that you are experiencing on the loss of your dad, Crystal, and please give my condolences to your mom too. It is hard to lose someone so close to you and when they leave us so suddenly, without us knowing, there will always be unanswered questions and missed good-byes. He will always be with you both in good memories that you did have with him and will remain there forever. God bless and thoughts and prayers are with you all at this very difficult time. 🙁

My most heartfelt sympathy goes out to you and your family, Cheryl! It is hard to lose your lifelong partner and even though time passes, the pain eases but never goes entirely away. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God Bless!

Hi, sorry for your loss. I will fondly remember Frank when I was newly married. I remember he told me a short cut to get to my inlaws in Nicktown, PA. I think that Frank had lived in that area; I think he said Ebensburg. In any case it proved to save us time and we traveled that short cut for many years. God be with you and your family. Jim Slack, PO Box 408, Sheffield, PA.
