My Wife Robin & I are so sorry to hear of Mr. Frone's passing.
I had the pleasure of being one of Mr. Frone's customers, and loved the service, and kind manner he always displayed.
He is someone the Hackettstown area will surely miss.
May the LORD comfort you all as only HE can during this time of mourning.
Paul & Robin Wallace
