Dear Joan and Camy - Thinking of you both with fondness and praying for your strength through this time. You were so wonderful to me when my Mom passed away - I will never forget the lunch with you and Frank at the Legion with my Dad and me right after Mom died. You helped ease the loss for us both and we were eternally grateful. I know my folks were there with Tony to welcome Frank home. My sincere sympathies and love to you all, including Donna and other family members.

Frank touched a lot of lives in his lifetime. He taught me a lot about Real Estate in the beginning of my career. He also was a very kind, gentle, and loving person. He will truly be missed. My prayers and condolences go out to the Brullo Family
