Sorry to here of your passing Frank. You were a good man and a nice guy when I met you as a small boy in Southie at Anna's house next to Claire. I know you are all up in heaven having beers with my mom Dorthy and George Sherman and your mom and papa and Claire and Johnny the Southie gang. I still remember when we all had those cottages at the cape in the seventies. That thunder storm that night! GOD BLESS YOU FRANK!

Love Always
John and Pat Noonan Jr.
