Just wanted to leave my condolences to the family, I am so sorry for your loss. May the loving, treasured memories left behind by Frank comfort you in the coming tough times ahead. May the "God of comfort " and the "Father of tender mercies" (2 Corinthians 1, 3, 4) strengthen the family during this terrible time.

Please accept my sincere condolences for your recent loss. My heart goes out to you and your family. I have always received comfort from the Bibles’ word at Philippians 4:7 which reads “and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus”. I hope you can receive comfort from these words as well. Margo Simmons
