Dear Goodhart Family, my deepest sympathy to you all as Frank’s prayer and wishes came true as he died sooner than later. He was so dear as he kept asking if his feet were cold. It was my pleasure to be one of his nurses and to hopefully help you all along the way. It was nice to get to know all of you in the midst of a stressful time. Take care.

Peggy and family, I just learned 2 days ago of Frank’s passing. What a great loss to all who knew him. I have wonder memories of time spent with him in many hunting seasons in Perry County. He probably already had Mother make him creamed rice in Heaven! I am honored to have known such a kind Christian man.
