    Dear Uncle Jake,
    There are no words heartfelt enough to describe the sadness and sense of loss I feel. There are so many memories in my mind. I know you wouldn’t mind if I shared my favorite, the first Christmas you lived in PA with us! You had no winter clothes, so we bought you a shirt with Santa in the sleigh sitting on top of an outhouse. Santa was yelling at the reindeer “I SAID THE SCHMIDT HOUSE”. You laughed so hard you cried. I’ll never forget that. Oh how I wish it were possible to share all my memories with those who loved you. I thank God we were able to spend time together in March. That time will remain forever etched in my heart. I’m happy your in a better place, but you’re missed by so many people. I keep reminding myself that distance is just a matter of space, when you’re held deeply in someone’s heart. So, my dear Uncle, I’m going to keep holding you deeply until we meet again. I love you, Mary
    P.S. Ginny, I’m holding you too. Thank you for making him so happy for the last 17 yrs. You’re very special to us all and we love you.

    I am Frank’s granddaughter and I have 3 sons Thomas, Josh, and Michael, 3 of his 4 Great-Grandchildren We will miss him tremendously. My boys loved for me to talk about him. I remember when I was a kid and my grandparents lived in Perkasie, PA. My grandfather would take me out on his riding lawnmower and I thought it was the greatest thing in the world. Love you grandpop!!!!! I know you are now comfortable and at peace with grandmom.

    Uncle Jake,
    It is so hard to believe that you are gone. I know that you are in a better place and that you are free of pain, and yet knowing that it still does not make it any easier! I wish that I could have seen you more often and that you could have met my beautiful daughter, because I know that you would have touched her life just like you have touched everyone’s who knew you. You were one of the greatest men I have ever known. You were so laid back and found humor in just about anything. I will never forget the time when I was young, and a bratty kid, that we all went strawberry picking at Solly Brothers. You were picking strawberries and eating them along the way. I found a strawberry that had a slug in it and gave it to you. Of course you ate it and after doing so I told you. I dont remember your exact words but I remember them being funny and you not caring. I wish I had a chance to go strawberry picking with you again, and without feeding you a slug. I hate that you were so far away, but I hate the fact even more that you were just a plane ride away and yet I never came to visit. I wish I could go back in time and just be able to talk to my Uncle Jake. But I do know you are in a better place. You hold a special place in my heart and always will. I will see you some day and then we can go into the fields of Heaven and go strawberry picking once again! I miss you and love you Uncle Jake! May you rest in peace.
    *Ginny- I love you and miss you and thank you for being so good to my Uncle. Even though Uncle Jake is no longer with us, you will always remain my aunt. And I am so proud that you have the title of being my aunt because you are wonderful. God bless you for making my Uncle so happy!

  • Okey R. Ryan says:

    Frank always had a smile and a warm greeting. I am glad to call him friend. Rest well Frank.

  • Doug and Debbie Freeman says:

    Ginny your laugh and smile is such strength. Frank was such a wonderful man. Always as you a smile on his face. A true Gentleman. Always looked forward to seeing you both when we came to see Connie and Jaz. Sometimes I did not see you both immediately, however I could always hear you both laugh. Frank seemed to be such a happy man and what a wonderful voice. I can still remember his talking about the movie “Ghost” and how you two would put on the music and of all things “Clean house”. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.
