So very sorry for your loss. Frankie was a great lady! I've known Frankie since Scholastic Days, when we worked together. She was always friendly had a smile then and that never changed over the years. She will be greatly missed by those closest to her. Our prayers and love go out to all of the family.

Grandma will be missed dearly, but we know she is celebrating in Heaven! She was a very strong woman and I feel she has passed that down to many of her loved ones! She lived her life to the fullest and I am honored to have had her as my Grandma! Love you and Thank you for all the great memories in which I will cherish always!
