Hello. I am Vincent DeRosa's widow, Ellen. Along with my children, David, Wendy, Holly, Krista, Gregory, Timothy, Ronald and Cassandra, and my eleven grandchildren, we wish to express our deepest condolences to all your families (who are their cousins they have sadly never met.) In this life, we rarely knew Frank. Yet, my children and I express their sadness at Frank's passing. I was raring to go to the funeral but was advised by family to stay put because of COVID-19. So, this note will have to do. Hoping that your grief will urge you on to happy memories of Frank, because by all accounts, he was a superior fellow.

Eternal rest grant unto Frank, O Lord, and may the perpetual light shine upon him. Through God's mercy, may Frank rest in light and peace. Now that his sufferings are over, may the Lord comfort you all.
