McCURRY, Francis “Frank” Henry

    To the entire Frank McMurry family go my heartfelt condolences. I am a co-worker of Patti, teaching fifth grade with her, and have come to “know” Frank and his family through her. We have lived through every moment of Frank’s life for the last year. I know this time will be difficult for you, but I know that God will be with you. May He give you the strength you need. My prayers are with you and your family.

  13. Howard Rodgers and Glenda :

    Dear Barbara, Nick and Erin: With much sorrow and sadness we learned about the passing of Frank. We know you three are strong and have been through a tremendous amount of worry and sleepless nights for months now. We have been praying for the McCurry family every day and were pleased that you were able to spend some time in Ontario this Summer when Frank was feeling better. Frank will always be the most wonderful husband and the greatest father in the whole world and he was so proud of all of you. Just remember all the good times you had together. He has been called home but will always be as close as your precious memories. We should be, and would like to be there with you, but we both have physical problems at the present time, which limit our mobility and we don’t feel up to travel by plane just yet. When we are more capable and confident, we will head out your way to see your beautiful city of Calgary and give all three of you big hugs. We love you very much and send our warm best wishes. By the way, your delightful family photos are much treasured. Take good care of each other, always. Love, Uncle Howard and Glenda. Toronto, Ontario
