Frank, Harry, Chris and Aunt Billie Jean,
I was so sorry to hear the news of Uncle Frank passing. I received notice from multiple family members quickly when this happened. Which tells me how much he was part of this entire family.
Uncle Frank was a great man, provider, father, family man, uncle and valued pillar of the Barber family. I will always remember him for his humor and passion for the outdoors.
My heart goes out to your family at this difficult time. We are all sharing in the sadness this brings. He will besadly missed.
I am sorry I could not be there in person to convey my heartfelt condolences.
With deepest sympathy,
Michael Barber - Saint Johns, FL
