I'm so sorry to hear about Frank. I have a lot of fond memories from elementary school and his bright smile. I lived on 7th Avenue in those days. My sympathy to the family.

I am still in shock after hearing that Frank Wright is with God now. Frank was a good friend when we were growing up. He stood up for me one time when I got bullied and I will never forget that. My prayers are with hos loving family.

I'm so sorry to hear about Frank. He was a great friend in high school. He worked with my mom at Buy Low supermarket. She always had good things to say about him. I remember one time in the hall when I dropped my books and Frank was there to help pick them up.. Frank you will be missed. Prayers to the family.

May the "God of all comfort" be with all of you. It's never easy when we lose a loved one to death. Our Creator does care about us. Philippians 4:6,7 says: Don't be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus." So when things are overwhelming remember what God's Word says. May you find comfort also, in knowing that others care. Hugs to Jackie and Susan. Sincerely Cathy Taylor

The pain, the grief, and the feelings of helplessness of your loss may seem unbearable. Why at such a young age? It is a sadness that defies comforting for a time. How very sorry I am too for your loss. At 2 Corinthians 1-3,4 it assures us - “Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.” One day soon the resurrection will be a reality and you will see him again and in good health. Revelation 21:3,4- “With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” I too extend my heartfelt sympathy to you.

My condolences to the family. I have a lot of fond memories of Frank. We were assigned seats next to each other on many occasions because we had the same last name. Frank was one of the kindest souls I've ever had the pleasure to know.
