I was a mission companion and afterward a friend to Frank's son Dan in the Norway Oslo Mission. I attended Ricks at the same time and knew his daughter Connie. I grieved the loss of Marilyn and then Dan. My heart goes out once again to the family. I spent many wonderful hours in their home. I'm sure it won't seem long until the entire family reunites again.

Hello, My name is Bruce Burton. We knew Frank, Marilyn, and Danny in the late 70's and early 80's. We, as a family, grew to love that family for what they did for our family. His unselfishness by letting our family use his truck and camper, and snowmobiles, with no thought of remuneration, made for some of the best times of my family's life. They were some of the most giving people I will ever know. We, as a family, took their truck and camper on very long trips, to Portland, Disneyland, and other places. In return I did some minor mechanical work for him, which by no means made up for their generosity. We saw little of them, but grew to love them, for what they did for us. Thank You, Lund Family. And our condolences to you, Connie and Michael.

I had the privilege of knowing Frank over the course of the last couple of years. It is rare to encounter a person with such dedication and genuine kindness to everyone he met. I serviced Frank's Cadillac regularly and it was always a pleasure to chat with Frank and I was always impressed with his great attitude and outlook on life. Through adversity and physical tribulations Frank always had a great smile, his Utah sweat suit and kind words for all, his dedication to his work at the temple was uncompromising and admirable. We will miss him around here, our condolences to the Lund family and Frank was truly a man you can say made you a better person for knowing him. Rest in peace my friend, we know you are in good hands.
Respectfully, Steve

Uncle Frank and Aunt Marilyn were the type of people that created wonderful memories when you spent time with them. They cared about the people they were around and made you feel special. I appreciate the memories of family visits to California, Illinois and SLC. Connie and Michael you are loved and stay true to the traditions that your parents have given you.

To the Family of Frank Lund, It was my privilege to serve with Frank in the Salt Lake Temple these past seven years. He was a great example to all as he performed those scared covenants and ordinances in a very dignified manner although it was a challenge physically for him, Yet he never complained and was always smiling. Two days per week he would faithfully bring a bowl or two of candy for the brethren to munch on in the study room. He will be missed but we know he is now with loved ones beyond the veil and standing tall and looking everyone straight in the eye. God Bless His family, Sincerely Alvin S. Anderson
