I want to offer my deepest sympathies to the Jenkins family. Frankie will be missed tremendously by me. He was not just a wonderful employee but also a great friend. He was always there no matter the need. He would call me or I would call him for things we were working on at home or work and just get each others thoughts and opinions. I will miss our morning breakfasts and discussions about family and projects we were doing. He always had that smile that gave you the comfort of knowing we could tackle the world. He loved his family to no end and talked about each of them all the time. Rest in peace dear friend I will always think of you when I drink a Pepsi. Chuck

I love you more than all the stars in the sky, you are my everything. I can't even begin to imagine a future without you in it all of the things you won't be here for this year. Courtney graduating high school and going to college, Kayla's baby being born, our plans to build a new house and Echoes first litter of pups. It has been 3 weeks since you left our lives and it doesn't feel real. i come home and see your trucks and think you must be in the shop working on our table but your not there. I keep excepting you to walk through the door and i just keep waiting, i want to text you but i know i won't get a response. I think this couldn't have happened not to you, not to us. Why? Why you? You always went out of you way to help other people, you put your family, friends and your job before you would do for yourself. If you got a call in the middle of the night because something was wrong at work you would always go to fix it, you took such pride in your craftsmanship and everyone knew if you were there the job would be done right. Every surface in this house i see your craftsmanship every where i look i will miss our home improvement adventures.
Baby Our Story Was Forever and It Ended Way Too Soon...we had many more chapters to write together. I will cherish our memories and carry them with me Forever! I love you and miss you so much.
