Our sincere and heartfelt condolences to the Polk family, May good memories provide solace for your family during this challenging time. God has assured us that we will see our loved ones again “John 5:28,29” also “John 17:3”.

, ,

May the friends and family of Mr. Polk find comfort in the Bible's promises that soon, "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" (John 5:28, 29), and "[God] will wipe out every tear from [our] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." (Revelation 21:3, 4). We can also rest assured that God 'will swallow up death forever, and He will wipe away the tears from all faces...for He himself has spoken it.' (Isaiah 25:8) https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/about-life-and-death/

Wanda and family, So sorry for your loss. Frank was a good man. He will be missed. Sincerely, Bernie Strickland

Bernadette Strickland, Midway, Ga

Always enjoyed your company at family reunion’s and Christmas times holidays , especially the story about you and Homer in the aluminum boat fishing on the Ogeechee river and and the snake fell into the boat and your father shot a hole in the boat with the shotgun ha !ha ! So then now y’all are wet cold and no fish a great big shotgun hole in the bottom of the boat . Always looked up to you and thank you for teaching me all you did Mike GIlman

Richard Gilman (Mike), Port Wentworth, GA

You were always a great friend to me. Love listening to your stories. I still believe it was karma when your dog ate the seat of that motorcycle you and I got from Fred. Will always love and remember you. My prayers to your family. Much love to Wanda and Mandy. Family always.

Ronda, Pooler, Ga

I'll always cherish the story you told me about the old gray haired man running down the passageway of the ship you were on in his shorts. When you stopped him, he turned out to be a Navy Admiral trying to outrun his Marine Corp body guards. Anchors Aweigh, my friend...Godspeed.

Tommy Sexton, Guyton, GA

Had the pleasure of working with Frank as a member of the Chatham County Police Department and the Counter Narcotics Team. Hadn't seen much of him after his retirement; one of those things you always look back on with regret. To Wanda and the rest of the Polk family, please accept our sympathy on a loss so great.

Mark & Amber Lupus, Savannah, GA

Frank, you'll be missed brother. I'll never forget the fun we had on the Bomb Squad. Especially when I cut the footies off of the bomb suit because I kept tripping on them. I believe you were a little upset. I love you man. Prayers to your family. God speed. Until we meet again. Pete Leopold and LaDonna Wright

Ret. Lt. Pete Leopold CCPD, Richmond Hill, Ga.,

Get some rest now Frank, we have it from here....Fair seas and following winds.

Bill Harvey, Ephrata , PA

Frank was a true friend and the best at anything he did. Frank will always be remembered for his craziness and witty ness , never a dull moment. He was committed to his family and his work. I will alway treasure the times we had together at the P. D. and all he shared and taught me. Frank was and will always be a true man among men, and I am honored to have known and worked with Frank. Rest In Peace my friend, truly a job well done. God Bless.....

To the family of Frank Polk, The loss of a love one is never easy, but take comfort in knowing that God now has him in his arms & he is smiling... looking down on all of you. The times you have had are not to be forgotten, but to be cherished & held dear to your hearts. Always remember to celebrate the memory & not the loss. As hard as this is to bear keep in mind that death is momentary, but life after death is eternal. You will be united again one day when God calls all of us home. We love you all. Carol & Mark Lauber
