“When I quit this mortal shore. And mosey ‘round this Earth no more. Don’t weep, don’t sigh, don’t grieve, don’t sob; I may have struck a better job. Don’t go and buy a large bouquet. For which you’ll find it hard to pay. Don’t stand around me looking blue; I may be better off than you!”

  • He was the best man in our wedding, and the best friend ever. Honest, hard working, loved his family. Had an inquisitive mind. Surely going to miss him, but he is in a better place. Rest In Peace, Frank.
