    My memories of Harry are many, but that of a helpful neighbor for decades, is in the forefront.
    Friendly to all.
    One of the most wonderful things that Harry and Leah did every Christmas, was to dress up like Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus and visit all of the neighborhood children. My now grown children were no exception to this. When they were so little, they could not wait until they got that surprise, and so personal visit. I wish my grandchildren now could now experience the same joy that they felt. You will be missed by many.

    I well remember Mr. Frank’s genial demeanor when he was the Scoutmaster for Troop 90 in South Brunswick, NJ in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s.

    I really enjoyed my days as a scout, thanks in no small part to Mr. Frank’s kindness and unpretentious intelligence.

    My condolences to Karl and Brian and, indeed, the entire Frank family.

    Harry was such a pleasure to be around. I was in accordion club with Harry for a number of years and always enjoyed his company. I had met Leah a few times when we went to the accordion convention every year and they were both such thoughtful and caring people. So very sorry for your loss, Harry will always live in your hearts with the wonderful memories you have of your father. Deepest Sympathy to you and your families.

    I read the obituary about the loss of your loved one and I extend my
    sincere condolences. Death is truly an enemy but there is comfort
    in the Holy Scriptures that “God will actually swallow up death
    forever and certainly wipe the tears from all faces.” Isaiah 25:8
