Dear Betsy, Jennifer, Jeffrey and Family, Please accept our deepest sympathy and sincere condolences. Frank was a true friend and a great man who had made countless contributions to the Town of Mashpee and to the lives of the people that he touched - especially ours. We just sent a bunch of pictures of Frank at the Mashpee Archives and One-room Schoolhouse to his msn email account. It is our hope that these pictures bring you and your family a small sense of joy during this painful and difficult time. With much love, respect and admiration for Frank, we are sincerely yours, Brian and Kristen Hyde

Dear Betsy and family: Debbie and I extend our deepest sympathy on Frank's passing. Always thinking of others before himself, I saw Frank at the Feb.2nd Mashpee Men's Club meeting, because, I am sure, he wanted to hear the talk by Board of Selectman and Wampanoag Tribal Council member David Weedon's talk. Frank embodied a truly Christian man, and his community and military service was what JFK was referring in his Inaugural Address -- "Ask not what your country can do for you, but rather what you can do for your country." A truly remarkable man. May he rest in peace. Our prayers are for him and for you, Betsy, and for your family.

I will always remember Frank's wonderful smile and his ability to make people feel cared for. He was a wonderful man who, along with Betsy, were supportive, loving friends to my mother Betty after my father passed away. They even helped her sail the intercoastal waterway, a trip that my parents had been planning before my father died in 1994. I will plan to spend some time reflecting on Frank's legacy of community action on the 22nd and will hold all of you close in my thoughts. One thousand hugs to you all, Kathy Barton

I met Frank through Tales of Cape Cod, and thereafter saw him frequently at various historical events. He was one of what used to be called "Nature's noblemen." Just an endlessly knowledgable and delightful man whom I was pleased to engage with every time I saw him. Every single time. I miss him and will miss him.
