Frankie, I can't believe you are gone. You always made me smile. Hearing you tell stories about growing up and some of the stories about you and Jo. I remember when she passed away and you told me about it I gave you a big hug, I'll never forget the look in your eyes. I know you and Jo are up there together again, you both will be truly missed.

You've touched my life in so many ways in such a short time. I enjoyed everyday we spent together; hearing stories of your childhood and your family. One of our last conversations will always be special to me.... You asked me while looking up at the sky, " how do you think it works up there Celeste?"

I bet right now you and Uncle Philly are at Belmont with the ponies, huh?
I remember those times riding ponies as child with you.
Pick a winner! And then to Aunt Fanny for some macaroni and gravy – and a little tripe too!
We did not have much time together all these years, but I am grateful to God and the universe

You influenced my life in so many ways. I will forever miss our long talks about various things in life. You were always kind and generous with your love. You played in a big part of helping me become the woman I am today. I will not forget you.

Frank, what was Jo Ann without you, or you aside from your wife? The two of you fed me when I was hungry, and took me in when I was homeless; you gave me hope. I tend to give the credit to Jo Ann, but without your compassionate heart, it may not have happened. God bless you always. Your merciful love and kindness live on.

This (video) was made for Dan (Frank's son) and his family on this past father's day. I thought I would put it here as a tribute to him. We love you Frank!...

My mother, Jeanne, and I are so terribly sorry for your loss. Frank was a great man and although I'm sure he is happy at home with JoAnn, he will never be forgotten by those whose lives he touched. God Bless!
