  6. Dear Dana and Tom,
    Just read about the passing of your husband. I worked with you at ECF as a teller and remember all the fun we had together. I am so sorry for your loss. I know how much you will miss him – he was always so kind and patient and had a wicked sense of humor. My thoughts are with you – as you remember him, you will laugh as well as cry.

  7. Dana, my name is Rob Deemer. Through a chance encounter, my brother Bill learned of Franks passing just today as he was reading a small magazine from Geneva College. There was a notice of Frank’s passing in there. I am so very sorry for your family’s loss. He was a great guy!

    Both of my brothers, my father and myself I have very fond memories of hunting with Frankie for years and years at Camp 9 Point. I was thankful last year for having the opportunity last fall to meet with Frank and Tom and my brothers and my dad at a small restaurant in Portersville to talk and reminisce. We had a really nice time that evening, if only for an hour or two.

    You and your family have all of our family’s belated sympathy and heartfelt wishes as you move forward.

    God bless,
    Rob, Bill Sr, Bill Jr, and Luke Deemer.
