I am so sorry to hear of your passing, my deepest condolences to your family in Florida & beyond. I will always remember your hearty laugh, those beautiful blue eyes and that crazy hair of yours! The last time we saw each other was in St Louis...all you kept saying was how much I reminded you of my mom. That memory was the biggest compliment I ever recieved and I will hold it in my heart forever. RIP Uncle...
We send our condolences to you and your family. We are here for you. Please let us know when you get back home. We are sorry for your loss and wish we could be there. Sending hugs my friend.
Frank was a wonderful man and a great father in law. In the 30 years I have known him, he was always happy and had a smile on his face. We love you, Frank and will miss you terribly. Tracy
Dad, I will miss you so much. When you married our mother I was two years old. I learned my values of life from you. You shaped all of us boys into Men. Your determination in doing things yourself and making us work for any money we got taught me so much and prepared me for lifes hardships. I realize that the way you disciplined us, taught us, Loved us as your own, was what would make us into what we are today. When we lost Mom in 1988, you stayed a huge part of our lives. Your life was a hard journey for yourself. Taking a family under your arms and making them your own. You had to fight your demons for years and turned your life into helping others best their own demons. You opened your home to help others and all the time remained the strong willed man that you always were. You never gave up on any of us or yourself. You had a mind like no other person I know. I just told someone the other day that at 70 years old you were the man of perfection, you could have knocked out anyone of us with one punch. Once your body started breaking down you fought back and kept doing what Frank always did. You never asked for anything. This last year has been so hard seeing you fighting these illnesses and the toll it took on your body. You never lost your directness including calling me an asshole a couple of days ago. I learned that you were still you if we had a conversation that somewhere ended with you calling me a name in fun. DAD I know that you have suffered so much and are now with MOM. We all take that to heart. I will do my best to live out the rest of my life in your memory and continue to treat people with the respect that you taught me too, SM! Frank Charles Harlan your ship has sailed for it's last journey. I will carry the flag from here, Hold my head high knowing I was raised by one of the Best men ever. God Speed Love Always JIM
