Thank You Frank For Reminding Us All About Simple Kindness


A Prayer for Frank.

Yesterdays Memorial Service for Frank Fife went off without a hitch. Perfect weather, lots of love and laughter, and, well Reedville at her absolute best. The day was very busy up and down Main street with people out and about. Just the way Main St was designed to do.

The Elva C and Sweet Pea were there as well.

Tables and chairs all set up from the local church

The new fridge was packed with drinks and treats

Frank had close to 50 people at one time there to celebrate and remember him and his passion and work ethic. Family and friends all in one place to say goodbye to Frank and meet all the Fifes, who were all just as kind and charming.

Seating for 50.

Thank you all for visiting and commenting here. You were also included in the service with many of your comments printed out. We are all one, and sadly times like this are gentle reminders of the good we all bring to the world. Thank you Frank. Thank you!

Photos of Frank and his family were all over the Railway. It was wonderful to feel the love in old photos

There was and still may be for the next 100 years, a tray of Franks favorite Twinkys.

And like a switch, all was cleaned up, and back to normal. Just another day in paradise. With one wonderful soul missing.

    I love all this represents. It’s good to see the love of people towards others and the bonds that develop between people. It reminds me of simpler times and what’s really important in life.
