Lost my friend yesterday, Quite a guy,

Frank was the guy whose table you wanted to be at when you were at a social affair. Funny, upbeat and always with a smile on his face, he could keep you laughing for hours.

I could tell you stories but my favorite was when he was working for A.D.P. in the '60's. Company would fly him first class from N.J. to Ca. After one of the flights, he called his wife to tell her he sat next to Harry Belafonte. Nothing more was said about that... Plane arrived, I'm safe and so forth.

The next morning, there's a knock on the door. His wife answers and there are flowers and a card,

"With my deepest sympathy,
Harry Belafonte."

I miss him.

H

1. Deepeest sympathy, Hoppy.

Losing our friends is just as rough as losing family.

2. It is really tough to lose a friend; 1 1/2 years later, I still pick up the phone to call

my best friend before remembering he isn't here anymore. You have my deepest sympathies.

3. My condolences

I've lost several close friends over the past couple years (as well as three brothers).
I've read that when we think of them, their spirits draw close.

4. Hoping that you're doing alright. Time passes and sometimes it feels like we'll never heal

I wish you the best.
Your friend sounds like he was quite the character!!


Memories will sustain you.
