Condolence & Memory Journal

My deepest sympathy to Frank's wife LaWanda and family. I knew Frank while growing up in Mercedes, TX. We were both in grade school and middle school where we both played football for the Mercedes Tigers and then Frank and his parents moved to California. My father Alberto was a very good friend of Frank's Dad. After their move to California we lost touch and I was never able to communicate with him anymore. I found out of his passing from one of our Mercedes High School classmates. He was a good friend and will be dearly missed. May our Lord comfort his family and may he Rest in Peace.
