I feel fortunate that from time to time I got to work with Frank at St. Joseph's Food Program. I will always remember his great sense of humor and his efforts that he made at the pantry. Rest in peace and thanks for your service to our country.

I met your Father only a few times, but I could feel his light and delightful energy. Such a lovely presence to grow up around, keeping things lively.

My heart is with you during this time of loss. Sometimes the death of a parent is so much harder than we actually expect that it will be and the grieving process slower and longer than anticipated.

Know that you are surrounded by those who love you... I am one of those people. Sending you love now,

Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Kris left a message on December 28, 2014:

Dad, words can't describe how much I miss you. A girl couldn't have asked for a better Dad. Mom & I were talking today about you and how you always liked to give everyone a hard time & joke around, right up until the end! It made those hours easier to bear-thank you for being you & for being my Dad! You will always be in my heart!
Love you, Kris
