Dear Phyllis, David & family, please know you have my heartfelt sympathy.  Your Dad was an extroidinary person. I have lots of good memories of your folks at the church.  They were spiritual giants in my life and I will not forget them.  I pray the Comforter is at work in your lives today and the days ahead.  Heaven is sweeter today because of your Dad!  I couldn't help but think of the reunion that has taken place this week!  What a wonderful promise that we, too, will see them again!  My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Although I feel sorrow at the loss of Mr. Frame I also feel pride in that I was introduced to him at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Horner in recent years.
Please accept my sincere condolences and know that he surely is in Heaven with the loved ones already there.
