I was saddened to hear of your father's death. I can close my eyes and picture how you guys looked in middle school. Wish I could have made it to the visitation.

I am so sorry to hear of Frank's passing. It has been many years, but I have fond memories of Frank and Olga and their kids. Frank was always kind and caring toward all of our students, faculty and staff. Lowell, James and I enjoyed our time with the Perez family. I especially remember our field trips and floating down the river with the students from Micronesia. I hope you are all well and be sure to take care of each other. Paula

Marissa, Angelica and Adrian It was such a privilege to know and work with Frank and to get to call him my friend, he was truly the nicest and kindest man I have ever known. I have missed him so much since the day he retired from SSS. I was so honored that he, Marissa and Misty came to my retirement luncheon. Thank you Marissa for keeping us updated on his medical situation.
