Dear Bartsch Family,
We were so sorry to hear about the loss of Frank. He was a kind, gentle person. I always enjoyed hearing his stories about growing up in Mozart and he was so proud when he talked of his brother Joe, his children and grandchildren. We will miss his smile and laughter. May God bless your family with loving memories. Thoughts and prayers for all.
