What wonderful memories of Frank we hold dear! Now he sings with the angels even more gloriously than he sang here on earth. And his kind words and friendship were always an encouragement.

Sheila Tremblett

Dear Ruth,
Kevin and I were so saddened today to learn of Frank’s passing. We’re certain this is most difficult for you and your family to endure during this time. I hope you feel prayers gently surrounding you as a comfort in knowing Frank is singing in the Heavenly Choir! How we would love to hear both of your voices blending together when we sat in front of you at church. Even though we saw you and Frank on few occasions, while we lived in Edmonton, we always felt a strong connection with you both. Please accept our deepest condolences and we’ll be thinking and praying for you in the days that follow. *hugs*

Garry and Sue Alexander

We were neighbours of Frank’s for many years. He was a wonderful man and will be missed. Tell Ruth we are thinking of her.
