    Sad to hear of Mr. Frayn’s passing. I remember the time he gave me a ride somewhere when I was a kid and his car was running out of gas, so he started swerving all over the road , zig-zagging his way to the gas station. I laughed then and I’m still laughing about it now, twenty-plus years later. He was a funny guy and I’m sure he’ll be missed

    Goodbye Mike. Besides Ellen, your beloved wife, your children, grandchildren, siblings, their spouses, and your mom, you also leave to mourn your passing, Ellen’s siblings: Margaret (David), Linda (Rick), Jim (Debby), Gordon (Karin), ever present and supportive George, Jean (John), and all their children. Your strength and commitment to Ellen and your children was ever present. Your devotion to God was shown in the way you followed your devout beliefs, through trials and tribulations. You were a quiet, yet at times boisterous, unique, determined man and the legacy of your teachings, beliefs, love, will live on in Ellen and through the children that you raised together. You will be missed, we are saddened at your passing but we know you are in God’s hands now and that you will continue to look after your family from heaven above. RIP Mike, you left too early but you will live on in the hearts and minds of all who knew and loved you. God Bless you.

    One of the last times I spoke to Uncle Mike at my grandmother’s last birthday. I was 8 months pregnant, he pulled me aside and told me how beautiful I looked. Inside his tough exterior is a sweet hearted man. I love all my extended family and think of all of you often. Thank you for contributing to my childhood memories of riding horses, chasing chickens and importance of strong family values. Love you.
