When I was a little girl, Frank's family were neighbors to my family. I loved going to his home because it was always so lively and happy. I will always treasure his mom who was such a sweetheart. His sisters and older brothers are also a sweet memory to my whole family. Now his precious daughter, Mary, is a longtime close friend of my son, Vince.
To my family he was Frankie, to me he will always be Frankie. God's blessings to all his loved ones. 🌹
