I am so sorry to hear of Frank's passing. I still remember when he called and said he was my cousin Frank Belt. What a wonderful time we had discussing our common family history. I had a wonderful visit in 2005 with his daughter Lori and husband Jon Keppen. Frank spent a day with me, driving me all over Lyndon and the area, showed me where my gr-gr-grandparents had lived near Lyndon. We spent time at the Lyndon cemetery where I have family buried, not far from his. I returned again in 2009 with my fiancee Lyman Ritter, now my husband, and had so much much visiting with Frank and Linnea and Jon, Lori and Matt. What a wonderful time we had sharing family information and learning about our lives which were so similar. He was a marvelous man and I know many will miss him and his friendly smile. I have many wonderufl memories of our visits with Frank and his family. Lyman and I both have the family in our prayers. God bless all of them.
