Franklin as I called you. You always came through the office to give us lollipops and share kind words. I will always miss you because the one you gave me was always stale and had lint on it and yet you would stop in and tease me about it. I’m gping to miss you sooooo much! When times where difficult for me, you reassured me that everything would be ok and it was ! Thanks Frank.

I shed a tear for a friend so dear.
I was eight years old when we came to know Frank the mailman.
Always full of smiles and unsolicited advice; never did we meet anyone so nice.
Years down the road Frank and his family were known to be, the wonderful neighbors of Flo and Debi, soon to be Larry. Frank (and Betty) just wrapped people under their wing, like their own little circle of kindness ring.

I’m sad he’s gone. Yet I’m happy he is with Betty again and I know there are a few ladies in Heaven that are going to get some razzin’ and warm hugs!!

May the fond memories you have warm your heart.

Rest and may you have peace, Frank.
Your little Bug!

We are greatly affected in the negative terms by the sudden loss of Pa Frank Wieser on Dec 25, 2023: news of which was broken to me, Tele (his neighbor on 7133, Van Buren Court, Merrillville IN) on Dec 29, 2023!
Pa Frank Wieser/wife Betty Ann had been our most caring and loving set of couple neighbors to us, as each of them related with us perfectly well, despite our being recent immigrants into the USA from Africa!
Their God-gifts of responsible children have ever been very nice to us, as well!
May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace! Amen!
Remain ever remembered in our subconscious minds!
