Such a sad loss. It is not often that a client becomes a friend but that is what Frank did for me. I could feel it from the my first call that he would reach out in such a humble manor. I looked forward to hearing from him and appreciated the opportunity to work with him to satisfy his issues. He had such a pleasant outlook even though he was often working through trying medical issues. I am sure he will be missed by all who lucky enough to be his friend.

Sheryl & I are so sorry to hear that Frank passed. He and I , as you know, had many good times together that I will cherish forever. From our "business" trips to Vegas & Germany to working together at the hospital in the O.R. & Central Supply. He had a roll in changing the path of my work life whether he realized it or not. If not for him pushing to have me promoted to Supervisor in Central Supply, I would never of had the opportunity to get the managers job with the State at White Haven Center Warehouse. I had every intention to be at the service on Wednesday but as bad luck would have it my car broke down tonight (Tuesday) and had to be towed to a garage, so I'm stuck without a ride. Please extend our condolences to Frankie & Kristy (who I spoke to a couple of months ago at her work asking about how Frank was doing). Sincerely, Dave & Sheryl Hewitt.
