CandleFrank was so caring and giving to others. He would give you the shirt off his back if you asked. He frequently brought vegetables from his garden to his church family. If he had a grandchild around he would always bring them to church on Sunday.
Prayers to the family. Frank will be missed.

I will always think fondly of Frank and I will never forget him bringing all of girls that worked in the same dept at him flowers on Valentine's Day. He said we should all get a flower and he made sure of it.

I remember him praying for me at Freedom of Christ fellowship when I was struggling. He was an awesome man and loved by many.
