9 months have passed. All those times we spent with our beautiful daughter is alive in her heart. She misses you more and more every day. Every morning a cardinal greets us. We know its you watching over us !! Natalie was just talking about you getting stuck the other day. Boy she laughed and she laughed harder when we looked at the pictures of Jr pulling you out with the tractor. She wants to build a mud truck with blacky. We will see. Natalie has been looking at your pictures almost every day. She sleeps with your shirts. She treasures every stuffed animal you have gotten her. I told her the other day about the bb gun and monte carlo time. That bb shattered that window and how you bitched about buying a window and putting it in. We had lots of fun with that car. The hardest part about this all is ,we were starting to get along and bam your gone. I wish you were here. love you

Dad The Best Ever
This story is about my Dad. Here we go..Once my Dad and I were out with the 1985 (blackie) We were going for a little ride on the land we have. When we were on our way since it just rained , it was really muddy. Then Dad turned and said to me " time to have some fun". We got muddy that day . Once back home the truck was covered in mud !! It was awesome. That day Dad and I had lots of fun. I miss you Daddy and love you lots
Merry Christmas. We sure missed you !! We love you and miss you like crazy. Until we meet again.
Love Always Wendi and Natalie

Today my Daddy is gone 4 months , 2 weeks and 2 days. I miss him very much. He was the best Daddy in the whole world !! Mommy is taking good care of me. She put lots of pictures of you throughout the house. She put books together for me too. You will always be in my heart. I love you Daddy.
Your little girl , Natalie xoxox
Today marks 4 months and 5 days. I cried the day I heard the news and I still have tears fallings.... I feel lost that I couldnt make you stay...A golden heart stop beating and hard working hands were put to rest. God broke my heart when he took you. In the end God only takes the best. Love you and miss you
God bless you Frank for being a great man a hard worker. You have done so many great things in your life
Dear Daddy , Today Mom and I planted a tree in your honor. I miss you every day . I was in the garage looking through all your tools and wondering what we would be doing if you were here. I often sit in the truck and play the radio and laugh to myself .. We would hit a bump and the radio would shut off. I miss you lots . I love you !! Mom is taking really good care of me. She and I went through the pictures. Talk to you soon Daddy
I think of you everyday , but thats nothing new. Its just not the same without you here !! Until we meet again... I miss you and love you
Dear Daddy ,
I miss you so much !! I can't believe it's almost 2 months. I stop by Pomp's every now and then just to see the guys. I visit you often at the cemetery. We put another light out for you. Every day Mom tells me soemthing about you and She has lots of pictures of you throughout the house. She makes sure I see everyone. Whenever I see an Eagle I think of you. I miss you and love you. To love to cherish forever. Love you lots Natalie
Its been one month and 8 days since you suddenly left us. Everyday we miss you more and more!! I do believe Natalie has your ability to collect things. Everything has a purpose. Looking back at the pictures ....we sure did have alot of good times. Your service was just the way you would have wanted. Brian ,Keegan,Shane,Josh,Jr and Mark. All seen you to your final resting spot. I know you would have done the same for them. Pomps just isnt the same without you !! I have so many questions that i dont have answers to right now .Until we meet again. I love you and miss you.
My heart goes out to Natalie who lost her Loving Father, may she find peace in knowing he is now in God's hands.
We are very sorry for the loss of Frank. He always was a pleasure to work around. He almost made us look forward to flat tires on equipment. Having him come to our farm was always a pleasure. It was always clear he had a big heart and was a good hearted guy. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten by all of us.
Frankie was a hard worker, whenever we stopped at Pomps he had a smile on his face and was anxious to help. We will miss him dearly.
Chuck and Laura
I went to school with him and i have to say he was a very special and kind man.
So sorry to hear ,Francis was a wonderful guy with a heart of gold were gonna miss him dearly, condolences to his family n daughter Natalie,
I hadn't seen him in quite awhile, but I'll never forget that silly smile he'd give you, or that twinkle in his eye.
To my friend Frank and co-worker.you will be missed and loved.you were always there to help someone out no matter what was going on.My condolences to your family.Keep fixing those chevy's in Heaven.Love ya man
So very sorry to hear about Francis. Many prayers and our condolences from your Oklahoma cousin.
