  1. Although Frank and Betty were good friends of my parents, I got to know Frank during his stay at Seabury Woods. He always had a smile for me and a bright hello when I saw him. He was always ready to go to the activities, enjoying his life there despite his physical limitations. He was a wonderful man.

  2. Chris and family
    So sorry to hear of your fathers passing. Take comfort in knowing that he has taken the hand of your mother and they walk in peace now, as they forever watch over you and your family. Let us know if you need anything. Take care, we will see you soon.

    Dave, (sister in law) Debbie, Rachel and Erika

  3. My most sincere condolence to the friends, family and extended families of Uncle Frank. May you find comfort in knowing that he has been freed of his mortal body and continues to live in all of our hearts and in God’s Heavenly Kingdom.
