Frankie! My heart is broken and I never had the chance to visit your Frankie-baby Salon.

Like Frankie, I am a daughter of the Westside Girls who are displayed at his shop in their Delaware Casino photos. He now joins his mother, Yvonne, and her gals Rachelle, Pat, and my mom Ida. They all loved dancing, singing, and soaking up the sun at Point Breeze Beach.

Rest In Peace Frankie.
With deepest sympathy to your partner, sister, and family.

The last time I saw Frank was at the salon in Miami Shores. I stopped by just to say hello. We chit chatted. He had a piano in the salon. He started playing and belting out showtimes. He was fabulous, and he made me feel fabulous too. That's the thing about Frankie. He's a gem, a real doll. Irreplaceable! I am blessed to have known him. May he rest in love. My deepest condolences to Michael, Chuck, Heidi, Maria, Camille, and Mark.

I remember Frank as a handsome, gentle man who treated others kindly and always had a warm smile.

We were in the process of selling our home in Miami Shores and moving to St Augustine when I met Frankie over the phone. My daughter had been to his salon and knew he played the piano and that he was in the market for a baby grand. I had one. He called and asked me what I wanted for it. He played me a fabulous tune over the phone! I told him I would love for him to have it and If he could get someone to move it, it was his. I felt so happy knowing it would get a good home with someone who appreciated it! He sent a team of wonderful piano movers to get it. They were so nice and did a great job taking it apart, wrapping it and getting it to the salon on Biscayne Boulevard. He gave me another brief concert when it arrived and invited me to the Salon’s grand opening. Unfortunately my good friend was having her 60th birthday party the same evening. I regret that I did not get to meet him in person. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. He was a beautiful soul.❤️

t was shocking to read this article today about Frank’s passing. I was one of his happy and satisfied clients when he had his Frankie Baby beauty salon on 79th Street next to MiMo gallery in Miami. Even though it has been over 7 years since I saw him last I’ve never forgotten his great energy, beautiful smile, lovely compliments and how nice he made me feel. My condolences to his partner, his family and all the people who loved him. May he Rest In Peace and may all of us continue to feel his loving and uplifting energy in our lives.

Chuck, Michael, Maria and all of Frank's family and friends you have my deepest sympathy at this time of incredible loss. Frank was larger than life, a shining star gone way too soon. He was a light that came into my life when I was in a very dark place. He lifted me up and held my hand for the last 19 years. Frank was a true friend I could always count on. We shared thousands of meetings and dinners and phone calls and Frank could always make me laugh and could make anything better with his smile and a song at the piano. I'll miss you Frankie Baby!

First met Franky when he moved in to the house next door to my 3078 Alton road home on Miami Beach. I loved listening to him playing the piano. We often had friends over for dinner parties which Franky would often attend bearing gifts of flowers or some fabulous desert. He even brought over an entire turkey once for Thanksgiving which many of our friends shared as they stopped by throughout the day to help us celebrate. Those were some of my fondest memories of Miami Beach. I will miss him.

To Frank's family & friends:

A light has gone out far too soon. Frank was an amazing human to be around. Kind, warm, generous and creative and oh so funny! Loved him like a brother and miss him so much. I will keep the memories close and never forget his uplifting spirit and joie de vivre.

Rest in power Frankie Baby.
Your friend, Angella

Dearest Maria and all of Frank's cousins, extended family & friends, It's too overwhelming to try to understand that Frankie is no longer with us. It's just too surreal to process at this moment and the news and situation are just too fresh to react to, when the feeling is numbness. FRANK RICIGLIANO was "magical." Yes, it's the perfect word and people were drawn to him like children to The Pied Piper. It's a gift and he shared his love, humor, generosity and talents with so many people, that there is no way to truly comprehend just how far reaching that magic was and how many people he touched and shared that love with and made smile. It's a loss. A HUGE LOSS. And for me, not a day will go by without thinking of him in some way. Maria, Chuck and Michael ... I am sending you all my love and wishing you strength to get through this most difficult time. Like EVERYONE, and anyone, reading this, I join you in CELEBRATING the time we had on this earth, with FRANKIE. Most Sincerely, XO Richard Jay-

The world is a darker place without Frank in it. He lit up every room he entered with his infectious smile and his random show tunes that he would sing. Frank had the best stories. One of my favorites is when he was a kid, he went to a Liberace concert in Buffalo. After the concert, Frank walked up and down the aisles to collect the beads and sequins that fell from Liberace’s costume so that he could sew them onto a cape that he made for his pet hamster. He was the best and we will miss him dearly! I do know that every July 4th that comes around, when we mourn/celebrate Frank’s life, he will be smiling down on us knowing he went out with a parade and fireworks lighting up the sky!
