Dear Debbie and Betsy and all your family,
My deepest sympathy on the loss of your father. I send you this prayer: O God of all who live, thank you for the happy memories of those you have called from this life to the joy of your Presence. They were you're a upon earth, and yours they are still. Thank you for their lives of service, for the example of their faith and patience, the inspiration of their words and deeds, for the days spent in their companionship, and for their share in heaven's new opportunities. Help us to live that they may welcome us with joy when you call us to yourself. Amen. Fr Brokaw
Dear Betsey, Ken, and Debbie, please accept my sincere condolences. Your Father was the nicest man I've ever known. We enjoyed several long sea voyages together, many social gatherings, and many private dinners together. Never did Frank ever have a harsh word about anyone or anything. Frank and Gloria made a great team--one that made everyone comfortable in their collective presence and provided joy and intellectual stimulation to all those around them. Frank's many kindnesses to me and my children will always be cherished memories. Frank was stellar example of an honorable man and loyal friend. On the very day of Frank's death, I wrote a dedication to both Frank and Gloria for a book that is almost completed and will be published soon. You all must be very proud to have enjoyed having Frank as a Father! God bless and keep you well. Best Regards, Randy Moore from Thailand
Mr. Houghton was the spouse of my British Lit teacher at Trinity. I spent 5 weeks in the British Isles as a student with the Houghton's as our lead chaperone's. I still quote Mr. Houghton today.
Frank was quite unique. My deepest sympathy. He will be missed.
Mr. Houghton was a very respectful, honorable and respected man. Although we have suffered a great loss in his passing, Heaven has gained a jewel! With love and a heavy heart....
