"An Angel in the Book of Life wrote down my baby's birth. Then whispered as she closed the book "Too Beautiful for Earth."
(author unknown)

I read this quote and it felt so right to me.... as I always said Franklin had such a beautiful face, and he always seemed a wise sage in such a little body even as a very small infant, just looking, observing, smiling. A little Angel. God Bless you Franklin and God Bless and be with your family Dearest Donna, John and Joseph.

I just loved Franks long beautiful hair! We went over after Christmas last year to deliver some gifts and Donna put the toys together right then for the boys. She is such an attentive and loving mother. Frankie was a wonderful boy and will be remembered as a joyful and loving son to John and Donna.

Donna and John, There are really no words that will take the pain away. Our hearts go out to you and your family. I saw a couple sayings "The longest walk home that any parent will ever take is the one after their child has run ahead of them" Remember Death leaves a heartache no can heal ,BUT LOVE, LEAVES A MEMORY NO ONE can steal. You Donna and John and Joseph are in our thoughts We Love you, Cuz, Linda and Mickey
