Uncle Frank, I am blessed to say, Was my own personal councilor. He was always just a phone call away. His kind and gentle voice and words of deep wisdom would always guide me gently back on to the path. He could so easily and kindly turn my self pity and self made hell into wonderful lessons that were food for my spiritual growth. He reminded me that I AM one with THE ONE and that ultimate responsibility is mine. I thank God everyday that I have been so blessed to be a part of Uncle Frank and Aunt Mart's lives and they a part of mine.

I wanted to echo the words above. Frank and Martha were both teachers of mine in ministerial school and two of the best. Martha, especially, was a kind of mentor to me as her love for metaphysics got into my soul. They were both quite precious to me.

I wanted to echo the notion that both Frank and Martha were very special. They were each two of my best teachers in ministerial school and they continued to mentor me afterwards. Martha, especially, loved metaphysics and I got that into my soul!

I had the great blessing of having Frank as my Bible instructor at Unity Village in 1999. His beautiful spiritual teachings are forever in my heart. . Frank used to say: " we are in our perfect place, on our way to our true place." Love, light and blessing.
Maria, his grateful Truth student.
