    It’s amazing sometimes how people’s paths cross. It’s even more amazing that, once crossed, these people become good friends. I have not known Frank for long, but I can say the connection was fairly immediate. He was honest, smiled when addressed and always made little statements which would evoke a chuckle. He was easy going and always looked you in the eye when spoken to. The biggest tribute I believe I can pay to Frank is the fact that he liked me, too. That’s really cool…

    I give thanks to Carrie for introducing me to her family. Wilma and I have been praying for all of you. I know he will be missed greatly by all of you but always remember: God is always good. He takes care of his own…
