    Dear Mary,
    Our thoughts are with you and your family at this time.
    Every so often I think of you and Frank, especially when we are out fishing. Those memories always make me smile – especially when he fell over in the boat and had his legs up in the air, or when we were at work at Western Canadian Place together and he would share some of your terrific home cooking with us, Mary.
    Frank, we will miss you. Be at peace, my old friend. You leave behind you many gifts, especially the many smiles. Thank you for sharing yourself with us.
    Dianne, Tom and Mariedke

  7. It is July 2015 and I can not remember a moment of my life when I have not been thinking about him. I miss him so much. We had so many awesome memory’s. I wish he was still here. When ever I eat a Hershey kiss I think of him. He would always bring me one when he came.

  8. I was 5 when he died
    I remember every moment of my time with him .❤️
    Like Carter said, he always gave us Hershey kisses, it was a reminder of how much he loved us. He would hide them in the pocket of of his shirt.
    I really miss him.

    You were one of the best Grandpas ever.
