I’m so sorry for your loss. I can imagine how hard this can be for the family. How comforting it is to know that God understands your pain. “Jehovah [God] is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” (Psalm 34:18; 83:18) Pour out your heart to Jehovah in prayer. Even if we struggle to put our feelings into words, He understands how we feel. (Romans 8:26,27) Hang in there!

It has been an honor and a privilege to have met Franklin. Having recently moved to Sneads Ferry from the North; he immediately accepted us and taught us the Southern ways. He helped me with my horse and told me that, as in life. “If you get thrown, off you get right back on again.” Thank you and God Bless you Franklin. We will miss you! Renee&Patrick

So sorry for the passing of Franklin. Such a wonderful man in our community. Quiet man but if you ever needed him he was there to help out. Franklin will be missed in our community. To all of his family, you are in my prayers and thoughts.
