Dear Karen & family: We were so sad to hear of Frank's passing. We always enjoyed our stops in the shop, usually on our way downtown, to visit with Frank. May your lifelong memories give some comfort. Sending thoughts and condolences from all the Lenhoffs.

Our condolences to the family! Frankie was our friend for 30+ years and we loved him like family! We met him shortly after we moved here from New York and quickly became loyal customers. Always gave big hugs and kisses and loved to talk (brag) about his family!!! May he rest in peace. We will miss him dearly! Patti & Ron Ross/Lerner

I just read about a Franks passing. I am so sorry for your loss. Frank was my jeweler and friend for the last 30 years. Every time I walked in I was greeted with a kiss hello and a question about my family. He loved hearing my latest family story. And every piece of jewelry I bought or brought in to repair or re do, was gorgeous! I haven’t stopped into Benders lately, but I will miss his warm special smile and that south side warmth. I’m so sad.
