Not sure what to say?

Almost 50 years ago, Frank once wrote on a short story I had submitted as a creative writing class assignment that he looked forward to the day when he could tell people it was he who taught me how to write. How true! I learned many, many writing techniques from him that I have applied throughout my career, techniques that clearly contributed to my success. No one deserves to be called a teacher more than he. He changed lives. Thank you, Frank. Farewell old friend.

Janet,Please know that Frank was a wonderful man and will never be forgotten.
We enjoyed our time with he and Billie Jo. His mystery writing's, his theatricals, humor, high character values & complete devotion to his family were extremely impressive. He had a good life. God blessed us with Frank as our friend.
