It is with great sadness that I write this note of condolence to Patty Morris and the rest of Frankie’s family and friends. I became acquainted with Frankie when I visited my husband, Larry, at Smithville Western. Frankie and Larry were friends, then Frankie became my friend, too. He was so caring, always wanting to help. I will miss seeing him when visitors are permitted again and I go to visit the staff and residents in the Willows. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

It was an honor to get to know Frankie as he was my late husband’s roommate and the nicest man to myself and my family when we came to see Andy. May your family find peace in knowing Frankie is not suffering anymore and is in god’s hands now. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
