    Al was my mentor back in 1985 when I arrived in Buffalo as a young and inexperienced principal. He and Mardell welcomed Patty and me and introduced us to many of their friends. I remember the trips to the race track and the great Rose Bowl parties at their house. The Frosts made a big difference in our lives, Love Nick and Patty

    I wanted to say how very sorry I was to here of Mr. Frost’s passing. He was my high school principal many years ago and was the best one I ever had! He was a very kind,understanding, and caring man. I just wanted to say thank you for all you did Mr. Frost. God bless.

    Mr. Frost was our principal at the Rockford High School in the 1960’s. Though many years have past and I have been living in Chile, South America for more than 36 years, I’ll always remember how kind and encouraging Mr. Frost was. Sincere sympathies to all of his family.
