Cremation has taken place.
Rest in Peace Frank. You were always so good to Sheila and I when we were young girls. I have many fond memories of the years that you and my Mom Mary lived together. While growing up with you and Billy and Donny there was rarely a dull moment in our houses on Barons and Brittania…Through the good times and the bad you were always a gentleman. In recent years, it was always a pleasure to see you walking down, and then riding your scooter down Hope Ave or to see you at the Bus Terminal. May you rest in peace and once again be with Billy.
Sincerely, Sharon and Don
