I always remember Frankie with a smile and a nice word. When my Mom, Dorothy (Mary's sister), was 20 years old (1953), a friend set her up on a blind date. When my Mom arrived at the restaurant, the blind date was Frankie. They both laughed because of course, they knew each other through Leo and Mary. My Mom always said he was a gentleman that night. They laughed about it for years. I used to tease Frankie about that night when he was in the company of my Mom and myself and we would all be having a good time and laughing." God rest his soul...he's with Judy and Angela and the rest of his family now. You are missed Frankie...
