Frank, I thank you so much for teaching me when I was still new to the Army. You were always such a devoted friend. You always went out of your way for everyone you knew. I know you're happy in a truly better place, yet we still can't help but miss you here.
My prayers go out to the Eck family and friends.

To the Eck Family, especially Elizabeth, I am so sorry to hear the loss of Frank. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I hope he enjoyed his duties as a soldier and will always be remembered for the time spent serving our country. We thank him for his service. Our son is considering the National Guard and hope some day to be a soldier like Frank. God Bless!!!

Frank was one of "my" quiet boys. However on the day Daniel's recruiter came, he talked and talked with the recruiter. I had never heard so many words come out of his mouth. As we got to know each other, he opened up with us.
Love you always Frank!

The God I Know - Author Unknown

The God I know is a God close by,
Not seated in the far - off sky;
He is here on this earth, reflected in the trees,
In the mountains, in the flowers, in the sweet summer breeze.
In ocean's grandeurm in plain's delight,
In noontide glare, and in stilly night.
In children's prattle, in manhood's prime.
Since the birth of worlds until the end of time.
For the God I know, with a thought that's free
Is the God of love, found in me, and the memory of you
That will always be.
