    Craig, we are so sorry for your loss. I met Mr. Frank many years ago when I sold real estate. He was a great and respected builder. I always enjoyed our chats when he came to the office. He was always interested in how we were doing, as Keith, your old neighbor, was my husband. I remember his big smile and laugh fondly.
    Cliff and I send our deepest condolences to the entire family. My God bless you and comfort you in this difficult time.

    Craig, I didn’t know your father, but I have known you for 20+ years and can resolve by your character and kindness that your father must have been an absolute stand-up guy. We at The Church of the Highlands offer our deepest sympathies and have prayed for you and your family as you grieve this great loss. We pray that you will cling to the truths in Scripture…”God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1…and know we will be a support for you if needed. –from COH staff
