To the entire Kennedy Family, I just learned of Frank's passing and I am so very sorry. Frank was a one of a kind man who made his children his number one priority. He was like another son to my Dad. I am sure they are together either ripping something apart or putting it back together. Frank and I could have written a comedy of growing up together ( although our parents may not agree) Sleep in peace Frank I will remember you fondly and think and pray for you often.
