Jean and family, I am so sorry for your loss. May God comfort you and give you peace during this time of sorrow.
I have fond memories of working with Fank at the Gas company back when it was Arkla. I'm sorry to hear of his passing. I have passed on the news of his death to his first wife's neice in Mt. Ida. Again, my condolences to the family.
