Frank Rice Update #3


Yesterday morning my best friend and husband entered heaven’s gates. What a glorious moment that was for Frank. Surrounded by our children and grandchildren we all hugged, kissed him and cried a lot of tears. Frank has been in my life for 41 years and I can honestly say they have been the best years of my life. While in the hospital one of the nurses asked him, what did he attribute to a successful 39 year marriage. Without missing a beat Frank said, “Marry someone who loves you.” Truly, that is the perfect answer. We loved each other passionately and have always tried to put one another first. Frank is one of those kind of irraplacible people. He was there for everyone even strangers. If you needed something, you could count on Frank to come through for each one of you. Frank will be in my heart forever. I will carry him with me wherever I go. And best of all Frank promised to be the first one to welcome me when I step from this temporary dwelling place into my heavenly home. Yes, it is true–Heaven is Better. For me Heaven is Better because Frank is there. Marlene
