We have great memories of our time with you guys at the Plush Luzon Estates at "Hammer Field" haha when Frankie and I where attending FSU. We played some great Vollyball and pinochle games and what fun driving to school in Frankie's TD, that was his pride and joy at the time!! Students were always low on on cash. When our famlies got together (Preston,

Carol,Greg, Kim and Barry) and the Davidson family we could laugh at a drop of a hat, get a potluck together and go to any free or cheap event at
csuf. We'll alwalys be greatful to you Polly and Frankie for lendling us the money for tuition till I got paid from school farm $62.50 ha! ha!
On the first day of cchool Pres got in our clunker of a Plymouth and the darnd thing wouldn't start. Pres yelled and out I came int my bathrob to push start the car. There we were pushing away and out came Polly (in her bathrob) and she came over and said "I'm not very big but I sure can push).The car started . Preston went off to school. And, that is how we met the Davidson's. We will always have the fondest of momories of Frankie and all of you Polly. Love ya always, Carol and Preston

Sweet Frankie, You know me , I always have to have the last word...I have so many memories of you and your quiet strengh. We were so young when we left California (you were 24 and I was 22, with 2 little boys, a 2 yr old and a 4 mnth old. Harry had given us that old "1949 tear drop chevy" and you paid $50 fo an old open flat bed trailor. You built up the sides with plywood. We had everything we owned on it, including Keenies new trycicle on top. We were dragging bottom when we left your folks Armona Farm, your daddy standing in the driveway crying. As we slowly crawled up over the "Grapevine" that August evening in 1959, you had to stop to pour water in the radiator since it kept heating up. Even then God had his hand over us. I never worried, because I was with you and you were so capable. We were in Tucson 26 years.....
Then in May of 1985, we drove away from Tucson, leaving our 2 boys and their wives, Keenie and Peggy, and Pete and Lisa (and 3 beauiful grandbabies,Paul,Danny,and Tory)and our daughter, Amy. Off we went toward the Woodlands, Texas, to work for Pennzoil. Not a clue that 3 of our grandbabies, Amy's boys, Micah, AAron
and Sidney would forever be born Texans.
and now, sweet Frankie, you rest at peace next to Harry and close to your wonderful Mom and Dad. I just never could believe I was so lucky to marry into your calm, happy family. I watched so close to see how you treated your Mom, because even as a dumb 18 yr old, I knew that was how you'd treat me later. Forever kind.

How do I thank you for 56 happy, wonderful years? Magical numbers since we were married on Aug 12,1956.... Be with me Frankie, hold my hand forever, I still need you and have so many questions...who'll put water in the radiator now? Remember when I poured water in the oil hole in Tulare that hot summer day when Keenie and Pete were so little...your life was never easy, but you loved us all so much and took it all in stride. You never showed signs of running away. May God Bless you and Bless you forever, sweet, sweet man. Our Daddy forever.
Love, Polly

Dear Polly and Family,
I did not have the privilege of knowing Frank until he was near retirement and after. I did, however, have the privilege of having Frank and Polly as traveling companions for trips covering the major road systems in Alaska, a trip to England where we stayed with Pete, Lisa and family, a tour of Scotland, Paris and a jet boat adventure on the Snake River.
Frank was quiet and humble, one would never know of his professional success, never judgemental and seemed to have a contentedness based on his Christian faith.
He will be missed by all who knew him.

Working at Dr. Wychoff's lab, playing bridge, and dancing lessons in your kitchen, scuba diving in Mexico; those wonderful memories will never be forgotten. We will always remember what a good peson you are. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you Polly and family.

Hey Frankie: You are missed already.We have gone to church with you and Polly for at least 20 years. You were a gentleman never caused any trouble always there for your family and the church/.you were the treasurer for many years. I can never thank you enough for the back road tours of England, Scotland and majorica Spain with out you driving on the wrong side of the road we would never have seen the beautiful sights. The wonderful 10 days we stayed on the yacht in Fort Lauderdale Florida and toured Florida. Playing games every night. I didnt realize how much Amy,s boys look like you when you were young. We will miss you however we will be seeing you shortly were just behind you. where there is no pain, no sorrow no tears. What a wonderful place that will be. See you soon Love Dick & Gayle

My Dear Polly and family,
I want you all to know that our family has not forgotten any of you, everytime we go down Arroyo Chico, we look at "your home" and remember being blessed by our Savior with knowing all of you! Now seeing all of your beautiful family photos is also a blessing! My memories of Frank are of seeing the love of God in all that he said and did. The presence of God's peace and joy were very visible. I know it must be hard not to have him here any longer, but also know that you all know of our Lord's promise and comforted knowing of us seeing each other again where he is enfolded in God's love.
Psalm 119:50 This is my comfort in my distress, that your promise gives me life.
God loves you all and so do we!
Love and prayers for all,
Billie/Dave Sanchez

Mr. Davidson was there when I accepted Christ into my life. I always remember he always had a flat-top hair cut and wore hush-puppy shoes and rarely said a whole lot. But, when he did say something; it was usually something one would think Einstein would say. It's odd, but even now so many years since I have seen him and his family; I have thought often of him specifically. I remember he had returned to school later in life, and now that I am doing the same, his memory has served as an inspiration to my venture back into academia. I thank God for Mr. Davidson and his influence on my life.

My memories of Frankie
I had the pleasure of joining Frankie & Polly on a trip to England &Scotland & Oh what a trip it was!
We stayed with Pete.Lisa&Family & were treated with such warm hospitality.
While visiting a town in Scotland Frankie waited patiently while we women visited all the Thrift stores & put up with our endless chatter.
Frankie will be dearly missed by me. I will always remember his kindness,reliability & sweetness.also his love for Chinese food.I am so glad I met Polly & Frankie.My only regret is I wish it had been sooner.
My prayers & Love are with you Polly.

I was so glad Frank got to eat at Willie's with us a few weeks prior to passing. It was such a joy to see him again after a few years. He will be greatly missed by all who loved him.

Gone from this earth but never to be forgotten because he left a legacy of love and compassion to his wife, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Because Frank was a quiet man, I did not know many things about him that were written in his obituary. What a wonderful life he had! Thinking of you, Polly, and praying for comfort for you and your entire family. Blessings and Love, Kate and Victor Pinelo
