Dear Saundra & the extended family of Frank- I only got to meet and know Mr. Golon as a volunteer with Hope Health Services in Ft. Myers within the last several months visiting with him on a number of occasions for an hour at a time. I felt that I got to know him very well and developed a wonderful friendship and respect for him. After my first visit, he gave me the "assignment" of reading his book, which I did. We discussed every aspect of his life and even discussed what can be expected in life after death. It was very obvious what his passions were, starting with the profound love of his wife, whom he fell in love with the minute he first saw her. His family was treasured and his dedication to his co-workers and union cohorts was unwavering. He certainly was ahead of his time in his support for Civil Rights, risking harm by personally participating in the marches in Alabama. I was amazed at his great wisdom. I can only imagine how much he will be missed by his family as I will miss him, having met him after he turned 100 years of age. Rest assured that our heavenly Father has saved a wonderful place for him in the kingdom right next to his beloved Anna. May God be with your family until you see this incredible man again! With deepest sympathy, Ange J. Ford & family Ft. Myers, Florida

My sweet Uncle Frank,
I have such fond memories spending time at your home in New Jersey. You and Aunt Anna had such incredible patience and love for children. When I became an adult and came for a visit from NYC, you and Aunt Anna treated me so special, taking me out to dinner and spending the evening with me. I'll never forget it. I enjoyed your words of wisdom and the sharing of old stories. You will be missed.
With Love,
Lynn Zachem
