My Husband and I share with the family in the loss of your dearly beloved Frank. we were at Sweet Home Baptist Church together when he got Baptized along with my Nephew and others. We all parted ways and went to other Churches but memories linger. We watched him grow from pew to Deacon, to pulpit. God's calling was with him. He can now be in that special place that God prepared for him. May you all find comfort in the precious, loving memories of him, especially that smile. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. Our Prayers are with you all. R.I.H. Frank.

I will never forget my granddaddy!!! The love he gave was undeniable. He was such a jokester popping his dentures out to make me laugh! Taking me to Sunday school with him every Sunday making sure I knew who God was and is. Making him peanut butter sandwiches, no jelly haha. He will forever be in my heart.
