My Daddy

March 9, 2009

A Time for Everything - Sunday, March 8, Greenville, MS;

At approx. 4:30pm, Frank A Carlton Sr., was out on his goat farm doing one of the things that he loved best, looking after his animals. With a feed bucket in hand, Frank was slinging sweet feed & corn so that all the creatures got their share. It was at that time Frank Sr. had a heart attack.

He sat down with his “friends” and in the most gracious way God could of ever made the call, He told Big Frank, “let’s go home.”

Arrangements are for Wednesday visitation from 6-8 at the First Baptist Church - Greenville and another visitation from 10-11 on Thursday; the funeral service is at 11:00am.

In loving memory of my dad,

Frank

Ecclesiastes 3 - There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.

Sweet, sweet words for a sweet, sweet man. It was apparent to all that Frank loved his family and enjoyed his life. He will certainly be missed by the Court Family. You are all in our prayers.

Frank, it has been some 26yrs now since talking to you last. I wanted to extend my heartfelt sympathy for your family and that your Dad was quite the man..and the driving force behind my own military experience. Know that your ENTIRE family are in my prayers as you go through this page in your lives.

Hi Frank,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My father also went Heaven on Sunday. Your Father sounded like a wonderful man. Maybe they got to enter those pearly gates together! Isn't it so comforting to know that they are in Heaven and we will see them again someday. I will continue to pray for your family. Christi Pugh
