Dear Keener and Perdue Family: What a wonderful man Frank was. He always made me smile. He always had a great attitude towards life and he will be missed very much. His love of his beloved animals touched my heart from the first time that I met him. He loved his family and was proud of all of all of you. It was my honor to have known Frank and I will miss his dearly.

Frank was a very special man and Brother. His wife and family were his whole world and he was surrounded with love right up to the end. He will be truly missed.

Skip and Lynn
Frank will be very missed, and Sue, you have been magnificent. You have both set an example for family and friends about how to handle tremendous pain and suffering.

May our dear Frank rest in peace. He was an adorable younger cousin - always so good natured and kind. It is unfair he had to suffer so much, but certainly set the bar high, you both do, for how bravery really looks. Love from Virginia, Michael and Diana
