Dear Judy,
How sweet of you to leave this note--and how wonderful to hear from you! Sounds like you are living in Greenville now. If you have a facebook acct., look for me there (Stacy Gibbons Moore). I hope you are doing well. I think of you often, too!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Thank you Vicky! I don't think I ever realized that he stayed with you and Bill, but I do remember seeing you guys when I was home in Woodruff during summers while I was in college. I hope we see you soon! Love, Stacy

Thank you Vicky for sharing this wonderful little story about my dad and his caring nature. It is comforting to us to know that he made such a memorable and kind impression.

Thank you so much, Phil, for sharing this. It means so much to us, his daughters, to read your kind words. And you are absolutely right--my mother did keep him young!

So sorry to hear of Frank's passing.  I was Stacy's roommate at USC.  Stacy and I shared lots of stories about our families and I got to visit with Frank and Ann several times.  Stacy, I think of you so often.  Please reach out to me when you can as I would love to catch up with you.  Judy Jennings Wilson   [email protected]

I am so saddened to hear of Frank's passing.  I worked with Frank for several years and considered him to be one of my best friends from that experience.  I have tried to pattern my leader skills after Frank as he was always patient, a good listener and willing to serve as a mentor. We had so many good natured jabs between a Gamecock and a Tiger. We have continued to trade Christmas cards and I thought of him often and hoped that we could get together again after the Covid restrictions are over.  The description of Frank always singing a country song or having a one liner for every occasion brought back so many memories and was so true.  He was so devoted to Ann and I always thought she kept him thinking young.  They were so good together.
I loved Frank and will miss your Dad.

Bill and I, young marrieds, lived in an apartment in Spartanburg in the mid 70s  when Frank, my mother's youngest sibling, took a job with Lockwood-Greene. He would be moving the family to our area once he found a home for you all. In the meantime, he stayed with us during the week and went back home to Virginia on the weekends. He tried to teach how to play golf but that never really took. But Bill loved to play bridge. So when the family got moved to the house on a golf course in Woodruff, we were invited on several occasions to dinner and bridge with Ann and Frank. It was a special time for us. Unfortunately, we moved away and saw each other only occasionally over the years. A few years back when we visited him in his home in Mauldin, he said, "That was pretty presumptuous of me to expect y'all to put me up back then." As I told him, we did not feel put upon. We felt honored. We are thankful for those memories.

I am a member of Buncombe Street.  I wanted to share this with his family to endorse what a kind person he was.  I am a member of the Nan Ivester Fellowship Group.  As a part of our fellowship mission, we started sending good well wishes to some of the shut-ins from church.  One of the first cards that I sent was to your Dad.  I could not believe that he wrote ME back just thanking me for reaching out!  I reported to the group that the card ministry was working and that I had even had a response card!  That tells me what a personable, grateful man that he was.  Much love to all of you daughters.
