Condolences

I am so saddened to hear about Frankie. We go WAY back in childhood and had many times together. My parents and his were best of friends and played cards and had many clambakes together. In those early days, I had the job of "watching" Frankie while our parents were playing cards etc. He was a terror back then..lol (probably age 9 or 10). The last time I saw him was down at his mom's and Jack's in Cape May. Probably 25 years ago. I remember how nice it was to see him again.  Frankie, may you rest well.

I am so sorry for your loss. I would see Frankie pop in and out over the years when I had been visiting Lois and Carl (my Nanny and Pop Pop) as a teenager. Always had good memories! Prayers and condolences to the family.

I am so sorry to hear about Frank's passing.  Another unexpected heartache of 2020.  May 2021 give you peace and healing.

I was always so thankful for your living next to my Mother, Gerry.  I knew that between the two of you she would be taken care of until one of us could get there if anything happened.  It was so nice of Frank to do things for her around the house as well.

Love you!

Carolyn
