Bobbie, Deb and Family, we are sorry to hear about Frank. We will always remember him as a good friend, neighbour and camper. We have many very fond memories of him especially times at 'the Dove' and our neighborly get togethers after volleyball at The Tip. Bob & Peg

Bobbi and all the family,

Just received this information from John O'Brien at the Tip. This is such sad news,as Frank was such a good friend and faithful volley ball player and he will be greatly missed. We all had 31 years together in Texas and we enjoyed the fellowship with all the team and their family's. I know this is an extremely hard time for all the family, and we will remember you in our prayers. If you ever get back down our way, give us a call and visit with us.

Ms. Bobbie & family. I am saddened to hear of the passing of my old friend Frank. Please know how very sorry I am. We played together and against each other for over 25 years on the volleyball court at the Tip. His ready smile and good humor was always evident in many, many ways.
When the Lord calls our loved ones home, he leaves a gift of memories in exchange. You have many friends at the Tip Bobbie, I am sure it would be a good place for you to spend this winter. Take heart. Time will soften the edges and ease your burdens.
