Franklin “Frankie” McKenzie

Frankie was born in West Virginia.  Our beloved Frankie was the joy of his mother Susan and brother Matthew’s life. Frankie had such a big presence in our lives. He loved walks at Sherando Park, snuggling, treats and giving kisses. And I cannot forget he loved his blankies. He loved opening presents Christmas morning. He wanted to be where you were at all times. Frankie is survived by his mother and brother and kitty sister Muffie. He is preceded in death by Mr. Kitty and Carl the guinea pig. I am certain that God blessed us with him and showed Frankie favor as he lived 17 years and 3 months.  Frankie, we love you. You will remain in our hearts forever.

O God, as we have taken care of Frankie in life, we ask that You watch over him in death. You entrusted Frankie to our care; now, we give him back to You. May Frankie find a happy new home in Your loving embrace. As we remember Frankie, may we love each other more dearly.


What a beautiful and loving tribute to a most remarkable pup that touched everyone's life. I was so fortunate to meet Frankie and will never forget his charming spirit and the absolute love and devotion he got at home from Sue and Matthew. He surely lived a wonderful happy life, and he is still in the best of care now. Thank you for enriching our lives, Frankie.
