    My condolences to the family of Frank Durham. I know at this time it will be difficult, but rest in this, my family will be lifting up your family at this time of lost, I will also pass this on to my Brother Larry, as well as my sisters Cheryl, and Donna, they were much closer in age to Frank than I am. God Bless each of those left behind.

    My sincere condolences to Frank’s family.
    I too was a member of the class of 1962 at ACS.
    I believe there was only 6 of us that graduated that year.
    My family arrived late in 1961 so I wasn’t fortunate enough
    to get to know my classmates well. But living in Saigon was
    probably the most pivotal experience of my life.

    Frank (my Da) I miss you so badly. You were my friend for the past eleven years. I love you with all my heart. I have some of your belongings with me. Thank you for your kindness and support during a hard time in my life. I will never forget you, will always carry your picture in my wallet. I will forever yearn for all the times we spent on your deck and swapped stories, smoked stogies with a glass or two of wine. You were so smart and intelligent. I will never find closure for you until I go out to Folly Beach, where we used to go every chance we got and cast a bundle of beautiful roses with all my prayers into the sea. Dear God I miss you. I know you were Buddist, and I am Christian, but we never let that interfere with our relationship. I have a book of your family history in my possession if anyone that reads this, please let me know if I can share. My Heart is broken. I feel so alone since you left me to go on beyond. Love Hannah (Ellen)
