I was so sad to hear of the passing of Frank today. He was such a kind man, I took him to church with me many times, cleaned his apartment when he was my neighbor, and always loved spending time with him, reading the Bible and praying. He is free from all pain now, he made it to Eternal Life, and is with Our Lord and Savior Jesus. I will never forget you Frank, your memory will live forever until we meet again in Heaven. I am praying for your loved ones to find peace and comfort in knowing that you just took on a spiritual form, the body was just a shell, you are still with them, your spirit is with them. May you rest in peace until the resurrection day, for you will rise first out of the grave and be taken up in the sky! What a glorious day it will be to all be reunited again in a place with no more pain. My deepest sympathy to his family! God bless you! Soraya

What can I say about my Daddy!! I love Him so very much!! he will always be in my heart the last two years of him being here has been such a blessing, he was able to build a relationship with his grandchildren and become a big part of our Church family!! He will be missed by many. My dad and I did lots of things together throughout the years from street festivals to shark festivals, to country music concerts and I am talking old country, oh we both love it so much Loretta Lynn , Patsy Cline, there was always some early rising or just carnival music players singing those types of songs down on the streets of Hyannis in the summer!! Fishing off the docks, bringing the metal detector to the beach or the woods, digging for bottles.... we did so much together. I will always miss you Daddy but I know where you are, I will hold you dear till the day that i see you again!!
Love Always your "Dot",

Frank was my buddy, I spent 5 days a week with him. We'd make cookies and share stories of our live. He was a great man. He loved cribbage, which we spent many hours playing and drinking coffee. I am going to miss him so much. Rest easy my friend.

I met Frank through his beautiful daugther Carolyn when he first came to Rumford. He got to know my husband and father-in-law very well over the last year and a half. He was such a beautiful person inside and out and we will never forget him. May he rest in peace.

Frank was my younger brother, suffering as I do with the effects of COPD. Frank and I were always together as kids, cowboy and Indians and Cops and robbers being our favorite outside entertainment. We spent much time down at the shore in West Chatham watching the oystermen, rowing around in a dingy and just observing nature along the way. I went on to two hitches in the USAF after graduation, and when Frank graduated, he started a bit of wandering around the country, eventually coming home to marriage, children and a regular job. Not too many years later he took to wandering again, eventually landing in Florida. His daughter, Carolyn brought him home to Rumford, Maine after a term of failing health. I will never forget you Frank and may God grace you with peace and serenity,
