I am so sorry that I cannot attend. Frank was a true NCO in every sense. He helped me in many ways,when I first joined the Army Reserve. Rest in Peace.

Deepest Sympathy from Mary Lou (sexton) Reese and Bridget Cassidy to the Huff family. I knew your dad and aunt Linda for many years. Jefferson Ave has lost many of its original residents and sadly will never be the same.

This is truly a hard time for anyone to go through and my heart goes out to both you and your family. I am truly sorry for your loss. However there is a firm hope for the future. A hope to see and embrace our lost ones that have been asleep in death, The Holy Scriptures in John 5:28,29 provides a comfort to us by mentioning that the hour is coming in which all those millions now dead will come to life again on a renewed paradise earth, and have the prospect of living forever. May this beautiful hope that awaits us all ease your heart as well as the hearts of your family and friends in the days ahead.

Frank was a great guy. Played pool with him for many years. He was always a patriot and true to his country. He will be missed.
