Dear Young Family- Our prayers and thoughts are with you all during this time! Mr. Young welcomed us every time we were at church to visit dad and then dad and Pam. He was a very sweet man and I am sure those traits will continue with such an extensive family.
Love and god bless- The Montgomery Family
Thoughts and prayers with the Young family. I was lucky enough to work with Frank at Liberty Craftsmen and Frank and his family made all their employees feel like family.
Dear Jackie, Bob and I enjoyed being with you and Frank at lots of happy trips and activities. You were always a lot of fun. You and your family have my deepest sympathy. Love, Wilma Terry
