A poem written By: Mary his 3rd.daughter!
Citation: she loved her papa Frank/

"Our Special Dad"

Our special dad is someone;
we'll never forget,
He had to leave us,to meet his maker;
whom we've never met.

I know he is gone,
and we will miss him so,
And it seems like the pain will never let go.
but God loves him too,
and this we must see...
.our dad is in heaven for eternity!

He was so kind and giving;
a stranger-he could never meet.....
and so much love in one little man.,he couldn't be beat~

He loved only one woman,and that was his wife;
She died just four short months, before God took his life.
God took them both ,so close-you see~
Because-he knew how one ,without the other would be....

All of his children , loved him in some way;
and when he left us; he only wanted us to grow closer each day,
To be kind and giving and to always be there;
To show them that you love them and that you really care;

Because ,just like our dad-he was always around.
To help ,pick you up ;when you were feeling down.

But now he has gone to meet God and my mom,
Where he can be glad;
Because God called him to join him...
That's "Our Special "Dad".......

Everyone needs a smile !!
SMILING is infectious, You catch it like the flu. When someone SMILED at me today, I started SMILING too. I passed around the corner and someone saw my grin. When he SMILED, I realized I'd passed it on to him.
I thought about that smile, then realized its worth. A single SMILE just like mine could travel 'round the earth. So if you feel a SMILE begin, don't leave it undetected. Let's start an epidemic quick, and get the world infected!
*about my dad*
HE was the nicest person that i have ever met!
and was always smiling.
with a couple of exceptions:
when he was in the Military,
and the day that my mama died.
He was my father for only 21 years-
But they were the most important ones.
He has shown me many things,
that i am looking on now,and say !
Ah! that was what he was talking about.
he only married once late in life @41-and that was to my mama{Virdue Davis/LaRoche}
He never met a stranger and he wouldn't leave you sad!He would tell you happy Birthday on his birthday -just to see
if you were smiling.
after we rode around in my big car;
having a Mello Yello!
On a sunday afternoon..
the very day that he died.:

The Marine's Hymn Lyrics
From the Halls of Montezuma
To the shores of Tripoli
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land, and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine.
Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in every clime and place
Where we could take a gun.
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job --
The United States Marines.
Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life
And never lost our nerve.
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes,
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.
