    Frank was a true neighbor while we lived just down the road from the Standers. He always had a smile and loved to visit with us. We had many good times at horse shows with the 3 oldest Stander kids. He will be truly missed by his family. God has a place for him in Heaven. Joyce Perdue, Jim and Sarah Perry

    Dear Rose Mary, Frank’s children and families, We were so very saddened to learn of Frank’s death. Please know we have been holding, and will continue to hold you all in prayer! We were also sad we we unable to attend his funeral. We met Frank at Verde West in Parker, AZ through friends from Kearney and Axtell. We had many visits and meals together. When Galyn would visit with him, they farmed many acres and solved many farming issues during those conversations! Galyn even had the opportunity to remind him that………pickups are red….combines are green! 🙂 Frank just hung and shook his head with that contagious smile of his! We will dearly miss him! We pray your good memories are a comfort, and that God’s love and everlasting arms will surround each one, and in time, bring peace to your hearts! God’s blessings and love. Our love to you!!!

    I am sorry for your loss and. My brothers (John, Don, Chuck, Ray, Fred), sisters (Charlotte, Elizabeth), and I attended (during the years of about 1944-1959) the same country school, District 82, with Frank, Kathy, Carol, Chuck, Steve, and Maryann. Frank was always kind to my folks, Karl & Hattie Hammer. God be with you all.
