Not sure what to say?

Dearest brother Frank... You took me into the Broome County Jail where I had spent time years before and I preached the Sunday evening service and you saw the power of the Lord Jesus Christ move. Joe Trotti got saved and the corrections officer had me lay hands on him and i prayed for a hernia operation coming up for the officer. You are a great man of God and will be missed. But I do look forward to seeing you in heaven and then again on the new Earth when Jesus comes back.

Love this man of faith!!! Enjoyed our encouraging talks and the way he ALWAYS looked with hope to the future! Great friend and brother!

Frank,was a great and faithful servant of the Lord.I will never forget the first time he arranged for my family and I to minister at Elmira prison in about 1977 Then for many years thereafter at the Broome County jail.There is no doubt in my mind that Frank is receiving some well deserved crowns.I feel privileged and blessed to have known him.May the God of all comfort be with you.Wayne Beddoe

What a shock to hear the news of Frank's passing. Frank was a dear man with a heart full of God's Love and Grace, and a great compassion for and desire to reach out to others. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

Shocked ... when I heard ... I am so sorry for your loss :(. We went to church with a Frank in NY. He was so happy to move down south to be closer to his family. I've used to pick on him belonging to CMA .. I would call it "Country Music Association"

I am truly sad Frank is gone but I am happy to know where he is rejoicing with our Lord. I also know that 200 plus men at MCI are praying for you Leatha because you and Frank touched their hearts and lives. God has such a great servant in Frank and I know when I make it Frank will be at the eastern gate with that huge smile and a hug to welcome me!! God Bless You Lethea we all love you!!


Please know our love and prayers are with you. My God bless you during this hour of sorrow, and always. I miss you and don't know how to get in touch with you. (352-595-2029) Love in Christ.
