  1. CandleImageTo my dear brother we will miss you when we think of vegetable soup and butter beans with ketchup. You were my favorite brother. Say hi to all our friends and family for us.


    • Yes he is missed very much. He loved his soups. It was a great honor to know him and take care of him. Our moments, talks, dancing and laughter I’ll cherish and hold dear to my heart.

  2. My Dearest Brother and most favorite Brother You will be missed but not forgotten. Memories of you will always be with me. Like when I see a green pea and it was NOT from a can of Le Sueur sweet green peas you would frown and of course you would not eat any other brand of peas. I Love You and I will see you in Heaven when my time comes. Love, Your Sis Lynda

    • Oh yes his Le Sueur sweet green peas he loved. Miss him so much, will cherish our time together and hold close and dear to my heart.

  3. CandleImageFrankie, so many wonderful memories. I especially enjoyed the swim parties that your family had every year. You were the cutest little boy and handsome man. I remember being at your house ( around Christmas) and your mother showed me and my mother all the nice looking clothes ( many) that Renee had given you. The 2 of you were still in high school. LOL Your mother said, “Renee and her family are after Frankie.” Well it worked. Now you and the love of your life are together. That makes me happy. Love you 💕

  4. Frankie was a nephew I never got to meet. I talked to Charles and Florance on occasion but never got to meet the family. My daddy was Charles or Charley Howard and my mother was Lois Smith. If anyone in the family happens to read this please email me. I surely would like to know or meet my nieces and nephew before to long. I’m 77 now. God Bless You..aunt Jayne..💔
