    Great man! Did many wonderful things for the State of Nebraska, the City of Omaha, and his boyhood home…Greeley, Nebraska. Rest In Peace Frank!

    Such a wonderful man and great lawyer. I worked with Frank for 10 years at then the Kennedy, Holland Law Firm. He was one kind soul with a generous heart. May his family treasure the wonderful memories Frank gave them. I know I will treasure my memories of him. My prayers go out to Frank’s family.

    What fond memories I have of Frank and Ruth and all their babies as they came along. Yes, I was their babysitter. It was wonderful as a teenager to be in the company of such a loving family.
    Bless all of you as you celebrate Franks life.
    With love, Pat

    I had the privilege of being one of the lucky ones who got to work closely with Frank at Kennedy Holland Law Firm for several years. He made us laugh and not take ourselves too seriously. It was a pleasure to get to know his family who I know will all miss him dearly as will many others in Omaha. Thoughts and prayers to all who knew and loved Frank. What a true treasure!

    To the Barrett Famiily:
    Frank was a gentleman’s gentleman. He will be missed by the entire community. Politics in heaven will never be the same. A kinder, gentler, calmer voice has arrived. Happy eternal rest for a kind soul.

    Our prayers and thoughts are with you!
