The Uncle Frank I remember had a quiet resolve. Seldom did he raise his voice, but he got his point across. There was always a twinkle in his eyes when he greeted you, sort of put you at ease. He will be missed by many. Our prayers are with the family, especially Aunt Annie. Randy, Linda, Michael, and Lareesa Klingler

I wish to express my condolences to the Hick family. I remember Frank when I was just a little boy in New Phila at the First Christan Church some 45 years ago. I remember Dawn because she was in the same Sunday school class together. Frank was a good man and I'm sure he will be missed dearly. My prayers are with you all. Good Bless and Jesus Love you....

Mrs Hicks, Dawn & Fred, Fred & Ben and all - we were so sorry to hear of the loss your your Husband/Dad/Grandpa. We'll always remember the fun times at their place "in the valley" at our baseball picnics. Also visiting with him at the boys baseball games, and at school functions. Your mom and dad were always so gracious. Allen especially remembers all the fun times w/Freddy & Benji at their place. We were all fortunate to have known him. God's love and peace to all of you. May all your wonderful memories help ease your pain at this sad time.
