During World War II, Frank served in the U.S. Army Air Corps. He earned his Navigator's Wings and was commissioned a 2LT at San Marcos, Texas.

    It was a great honor to stand for Frank C. Madill today. It was a little cool, but sunny. The family said they were honored we were there, and we explained that we are the ones who were honored to stand for Frank. Many of Franks friends and relatives stopped by to talk about Frank. We heard many interesting stories of a man very dedicated to family and his country. He traveled all over the U.S. and Canada to see all of the wonders they offer. The family asked me to pass along to Bill, Dennis, Chas, Bill and Kirby their heartfelt thanks for standing for their father.

    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.
