Farewell, Frank. You are already missed, but the magic you shared will live on.

- A note from Linda and Howard

 

Many of us know that Frank Abbott left us for good about a week ago. We feel that he left us better people, and did so in the quietest and gentlest way possible.

Frank taught mostly Yin yoga here at North Coast, a slow, meditative form of yoga that suited him well and to which he was strongly pulled. The work goes deeply into one’s body, and Frank took his students there easily. Let us show a distinction which he made: he always referred to “leading” a class rather than “teaching” it, a sign of his true humility.

Over a decade of association we interacted a fair amount with Frank and his wife Sandy: a super-solid couple with a deep and obvious connection. Our knowledge of who Frank was has, interestingly, only grown since his passing: not saying that we didn’t take the time to know him, but one could make that assumption. Like many people in our lives, our relationship could have been described as somewhat superficial: too bad. Maybe a lesson we could all draw here is to take more time in learning one another, not merely “friending” folks through electronic media.

Another teaching of Frank’s was both simple and profound: his personal mantra. “Breathe, relax, and feel.” “Breathe, relax, and feel.” Frank was a true servant, to his family, his beliefs, and importantly in his career as a firefighter, a public servant. He grew into a yoga instructor in the later part of his too-short life, and we’re very grateful that he did. The lessons of yoga seem to have helped him in his untimely passing: the ultimate lesson. Thank you from our hearts Frank: you served this world very, very well. Howard and Linda
