    Dear Rexanne and family, Craig and I send our prayers and condolences as you grieve the loss of your beloved Frank. My parents (Chris snd Dee) thought so highly of both of you and spent so many happy years in the Sandalwood house that you built. Thank you for your kindness and friendship toward my parents. God bless you. Frank was a wonderful man!

    What an amazing person Frank was as reflected by the remarkable life he led. Carl and I feel so fortunate that we were able to call him dear friend and trusted neighbor over the past five years. We are celebrating the life of this wonderful man with you as we remember his many contributions and achievements throughout his life even as we sadly mourn his passing. While we know your family will never be the same without him, we pray you will find comfort in each other and in all the friends who love you and Frank so deeply. Together, we will all get through this difficult transition. May blessings be upon you.
