  1. John and Shirley
    Your community recognizes your grief. You are in my prayers for peace and wholeness. Hugs Candy

  2. Jim and family

    We are still shocked with the news of Frank, and our thoughts and prayers have been with you all these past few days.

    Frank will always be such an amazing person and memory in our family’s life. Our kids were able to visit Myrtle and Frank on the farm from a very early age — to see and learn about farming.

    His generosity will be remembered, as will his personality. There are few people who cross our paths in life who impress us so, whose remembrance stays with us. Frank was definitely one of those people. A character. And while we feel a sadness, he was a character who, as we remember him, we can’t but smile. He made us all laugh. He was always himself. And that makes us happy and smile amid this sadness.

    Again, we are thinking of you all, especially today. We wish we could be there — and so send our sincerest thoughts from New Brunswick. And a thank you to Frank!

  3. My big brother Frank has been an important part of my life. Even though we lived far apart, we were so close and I will miss him more than words can say. Heli and I are praying with you.

    Goodbyes are not forever,
    are not the end,
    it simply means
    I’ll miss you until we meet again.

    Rest in Peace Dear Brother.

    Walter & Heli

  8. Our deepest sympathy to Frank’s family,
    I’ve only met him once when I was a child and he was visiting “his old home” back in Austria, but he was a very important man to my Mum and Grandma, so we are all shocked about his sudden passing and feel very sorry for his beloved one’s.
    He’ll be truly missed,

    Verena and Werner, Austria

  9. Franks’ Family,
    We were the lucky ones to receive Frank into our family and appreciate the new life he gave to Myrtle. They shared so many wonderful times together and Frank always made us laugh. I’m glad he finally listened to Myrt and got his hearing aids! His life was enriched once again.

    We are deeply moved by his sudden passing and pray for you as you say goodbye.

    Ken, Janet, Andrew, Kim, Becky
