  2. I am so sorry to hear that my longtime friend has died. I remember when I first met him in 1958. We both worked at the state hospital in Austin. We had both just got out of the service. We formulated a plan to go to nurse anesthesia school. We moved to Wichita falls to go to nursing school. After nursing school we attended nurse anesthesia school at Harris Hospital in Ft. Worth. I have so many memories. Frank’s first car, a Nash Rambler. We rode back and forth th Wichita Falls together. We played chess together. He was the best friend I ever had. My deepest sympathy to Sylvia and the family.

  3. Our deepest condolences to the Bethune family! May he rest in peace. Continued prayers for strength during this difficult time.

    All our love,
    The Medrano family
