Dear cousins, So sad to know Frank has gone from us but, it is good to know he is at peace and free from pain. I know he will be missed by many friends and family and will live in all of our memories. I was so pleased to be able to meet you all and get to know you a little bit. Enjoyed our visits to your place, and enjoyed you coming to see us. God Bless
Hilda: I know it is a mixed feeling when a Christian dies. The loss of physical presence and companionship is offset by the sure knowledge that Frank is at home and knows a peace that we cannot comprehend. I am praying for you and your family.
I have known Frank since he was a teenager and I was a young girl. I have always admired and respected Frank. I will miss him.
Dear, Hilda, Sharon and Frank, I am so sorry for the loss of your wonderful husband and father. Archie , Pat , myself and Jimmy (Gladys and Papa) love you and thought so much of Frank. May peace be with all of you especially Frank. Love, Angelia
Hilda, our prayers are with you and your family. We were very fond of Frank and enjoyed our visits with the two of you so very much. Frank leaves a legacy of love and integrity for not only his family but for those who knew him. He was one of the finest men that Gary and I have ever known. We take joy in knowing that we will meet again in heaven and once again listen to him playing beautiful hymns on the organ. We love you.
Frank and I graduated in the LCHS Class of 1954. I will always remember him as a soft spoken, easy going guy. I enjoyed seeing and talking with him at our class reunions. Heaven is better today with Frank there. He will be missed!
We are thinking today of all the years that your family and our family have served the Lord together at Little River Baptist Church. Just think how sweet heaven will be as we join voices around the throne of God. Your love and friendship have meant so much to us. Hilda, we are here for you. You and your family are in our prayers.
May the peace and repose of your loved one’s soul grant you comfort at this time of mourning. We selfishly miss those who are called to heaven, but there is joy in knowing you will meet again. Christ be with you in your hours of sadness. Frank, and you all, will be in my prayers.
RIP Mr. Boxley, such a wonderful kind man! He will be missed by many. 😢Gods Child Frank Boxley is now home. God Bless the family and friends as I know he will be missed❤️❤️❤️❤️
Hilda and family, We are so sorry to hear of Frank’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. My parents always spoke so fondly of Frank and Hilda. May God Bless.
My heart is heavy and happy at the same time. I have loved Frank ever since I can remember and grieve that he is no longer with us. I rejoice with the knowledge that his suffering is over and he is now at home with his Heavenly Father and all of our loved ones who have gone before him. I am positive it was a Joyous reunion when he entered the Heavenly Gates.
Prayers of peace and comfort to each one of you. I am so sorry I can’t be there in person tomorrow but be sure that my heart is there. Love to all of you.
Hilda, and family, so sorry to hear about Frank, the peace we get from this , is to know he is with the Lord Jesus, the one he loves, studied about, prayed to, and worshipped. We will be praying for you all Bruce Sandy Perry

I am deeply sorry for your loss. As I read the many comments it was clear to see how respected and loved Frank was. He certainly was a pillar in the community and in your lives. Throughout this difficult time remember that God “is close to the brokenhearted; he saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18,19) As you continue to receive comfort through him, hold tightly to the promise made at Isaiah 25:8 of death being swallowed up forever and all tears being wiped away from our faces. What a beautiful time that will be! Please take care and I will continue to think of you all.
Our heartfelt sympathy to family and friends.
I worked for the Louisa County Board of Supervisors when Mr. Boxley was a member. He was a gentle and very nice man who I admired. My sincere sympathy to the family in your loss.
