To Franks Family: sorry about your loss. Have many memories of Frank during his years here in McRae. He was a great friend. Sarah Jones Bowen
To the Lowie Family,
I have a couple dear memories of Frank. I remember at the death of my beloved Yorkie, Frank sat at my kitchen table and cried along with me--something one would not expect from a FBI agent.
After the Lowies left Red Fox Forest, the Fourth of July was never the same, because Frank would host the picnic and take charge of the picnic. What fun!
Did the children know that Frank was able to surprise them on Christmas mornings because he was able to put their gifts togther in our basement?
Cathy, Lisa, Laura, Linda and Bill. The memorial graveside service for your Dad today was very impressive. It was nice seeing you all again - just sorry it was under these circumstances. You are such a beautiful family. I know Frank loved his family and was very proud of all of you. God bless you during this difficult time. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Take care and maybe we can see each other at the next family reunion.

Dear Lisa and family. We feel so sad for your loss but know that our wonderful God has you tucked under his wing. Give your MOM a hug from us. We love you friends.
Jan and Denny McKee
To Frank's Family and Other Friends Who Loved Him Dearly: Following the passing of another of Frank's most treasured friends, Sam Zembelis, I didn't get to see Frank much except in passing. He was and always will be remembered as one of the most "real" people I have ever known. There was no guessing where he was coming from and no trying to figure out what he meant to say -- all anyone had to do was listen and learn. To say he was straight-forward would be an understatement. His life as I saw it was one of a powerful man with a lot on his shoulders. He loved his family dearly and talked about family often. He was more intelligent than any one person ought ever to be. He made space in his life every workday morning for many years to spend a little time with his friends before he started the day and those few of us together tried to solve most of the problems in the world that particular day while we collectively worked on the Commercial Appeal crossword puzzle. I am proud and happy to say that I was one of those friends and I still miss the "Bonton Breakfast Club" and Frank's presence in my life. He was a much truer friend than most people have the honor of having and I am privileged to have shared what time I could with that extremely varied group of interesting people who loved Frank and were loved by him. God bless you all and remember "...To get through grief , we let go rather than hang on, watching for the inner counselor who will guide us, ever mindful of the process that will slowly, patiently lead us where we need to go."
