Sorry to hear of Frank’s passing. He was a good and dedicated worker while I knew him at Nabisco. May the good Lord wrap His arms around all his family and friends and give them peace and blessings.
My good friend Frank’s dad, what a great man, he got me through my Masonic degrees, and he will soon be strolling through the pearly gates in those red sneakers. He will always live in the memories of the many lives he touched. Condolences to the Mellert family.
