Messages for the Family

    This couple was the epitome of a happily married couple and of the friends and neighbors everyone would love to have and should aspire to be. The Woodlee Family was very fortunate to have been friends and neighbors to these two wonderful people and their two daughters. We loved them greatly and grieve for their passing and for their daughters.

    I got to know Sandra and Frank through ballroom dancing a few years ago. They were both such wonderfully sweet, nice, genuine people. It was such a pleasure to know them. I was sorry to hear of their passing, but not surprised that it was so close together as their love never ends! I’m so sorry for Julie and Jenniferanne’s loss. You will be in my prayers!

      Frank Hartley and my Father,Bill Outlaw, met when he was at Capital Chevrolet but they became friends for life! My Father thought the world of Frank. I know they were in touch for a long time. I met Frank several times and always thought he was very professional and very much a gentleman! I was shocked and saddened to read of their deaths. My deepest sympathies to the family and friends.

    Jennifer and Julie, I am devastated and heart broken for you. I had left a message for Frank saying how sorry I was, and then I see his obituary. I worked with Frank at WCM for 7 years and got to know both of them thru our Christmas parties. Frank loved taking pics of all of us with our spouses at the event. You are in our prayers at this sad time
