Miss Terry, when you have the memorial, please remember, 'fried chicken, loaf of white bread and the potato salad will be there', for the Baptist from the Church of Christ. No
one else will know what this means but you, but you will share or not. . . the depth of
caring and love sent to you and your family is without measure.

Know you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Stay safe, and remember
we are here anytime.

Have known Frank since the early 70's, and have never seen a more talented, gifted mason in my entire construction career. Have watched him argue with other contractors and builders, found flaws with the drawings, created a solution and managed to finish a job with the highest workmanship in the building trades. He made working with him easy, his work ethic was beyond compare. His ability to bring a sense of humor to challenging times and to getting the job done, on time, are rare qualities not often seen today. He will be greatly missed, a friend, a fellow worker in the building trades, and more a good human being.

Frank , me , and my brother learned how to lay brick,and block at the same time ,around 1970 working for my dad Willie Willis .He was always a joy to be around, and a hard worker, and I know a true master mason,nobody was better than Frank, and he was like a brother to me,and I was always so glad to see him when could. I had so much fun with him,and Tommy,they were both part of our family.Someday we will all build another brick wall together. What a kind person. Kenny Willis

Dear Family,
I am so very sorry for the loss you are going through and the pain sitting in your heart at this time. I can only say through many experiences of my own I have found that, as unbelievable as it may sound at this moment, with each passing day the pain will lessen and the loss will be replaced with memories. I have known and loved Sandy since she was in middle School and she was like a daughter to me while growing up. Jerry, I have known much less but yet what I know of him he is a wonderful man and has always been so very kind to me. My heart and love go out to both of you. My sincerest condolences.
