    Dear Carver Family,

    I never met Mr. Carver but he must have been a great, great man. He sure has a wonderful grandaughter in Shelia Kliffmiller Campbell.

    Rest in peace Mr. Carver,

    Let you know that I’m thinking about you and your families.
    Frank lived a long life. Your families have had a lot of good years too enjoy him. Plus all the precious moments the grandkids and great-grandkids have had through the years with their Grandpa Frank.
    Take care
