Some rare people have a natural grace and goodness about them. Frank was such a man, being genuine and warm, with a perfect balance of humility and dignity. As you can tell I liked and admired my friend Frank and will always hold him in the highest regard. I give my heartfelt sympathy to his family. I know how proud you must be of his life, as I am proud to have been his friend.

Warmest regards,

Elliott Sewell

To all of my family, I was uncle Frank's favorite niece! I was born on his birthday so that made me extra special. Remember always that Jesus is on the main line and will bring you through. I love you aunt Sis.
