Not sure what to say?

In 1970 Frank and Merle moved next door to my parents on Barclay Ave. It was the beginning of friendship that lastest the rest of their lives. That friendship then passed on to my sister and brother in law (Ginny & Dan van Hespen). I was lucky on occasion to be part of their 40 years of fun and travel and "the best of times."

Dear Merle, Jeffrey & Courtnie,
I am sad at this time and, like you, find it impossible to fill the emptiness left by Frank's passing. But I am happy as well, because Frank showed us how to live our lives . . . with the glass filled to the brim with vitality, humor and unconditional caring. Honor your own grief and give it time. Reflect on his generosity, as he so enthusiastically shared his life with us all.

Dearest Merle, Jeffrey & Courtnie
In sadness and friendship, I send my most sincere sympathy. Frank's life was a special blessing to me . . . a 40 year friendship characterized by loyalty, trust, selfless support in my times of distress . . . and endless fun and laughter.
Frank: You have reached the summit !
Now, did you plant the flag?

Our thoughts and prayers are with all Franks family.

We are so deeply saddened to hear of Frank's passing. Please know that you have our deepest sympathy on the loss of Frank.
It was always enjoyable knowing that Frank and Teddy would greet Steve and me every morning on our walks. Frank was so much fun to be around and we will miss his great wit and charm.
We know that there is little we can say to console you. However, please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you, and your family. If there is anything, we can do to help,...

Merle, we didn't have the chance to get to know you and Frank that well but we saw a couple who enjoyed life and really became part of the neighborhood. I loved to cross paths with Frank and Teddy with my pack of dogs going crazy. He was always quick with a hello and put up with us. Please accept our deepest condolences and our wishes for you to find comfort in your family and close friends.

Jeffrey, I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am about the loss of your dad. I just learned of it from Stephanie. I want you to know that I am thinking of you, your sister, and the rest of your family.
