Dad, I miss you so much. Now, I have so many regrets about things that I wish we would have talked about and things I wish we would have done together. Thank you so much for all that you provided to me. Thank you for all that you taught me. Thank you for providing me with so many great opportunities. I wish I would have thanked you for these when you were here with me. I wish I would have made more of our time together. I hope that I made you proud and that my future will make you proud as well.

Brandie, Kyleigh, and Brennan miss you so much too. Frankie did not get a lot of time with you here, but I cherish that he did get some time with you. I hope that I can be a great father, a great example to them, bring them up correctly, bring them up as Christians, and provide them with opportunities to succeed.

I look forward to the day that we meet again in heaven. love you always.

To The Family of Frank Amato,
Jack and I send our deepest sympathy to all of during this very sad time. I have kept up with Frank during conversations with his cousin Linda Rose Gallagher. Frank's parents were close friends of my parents and "Frankie", Linda,and I were childhood friends. Linda often spoke of Frank's courage. Please accept our sympathy and good wishes.
Sincerely,
Cathy-Jo Russo D'Antoni and Jack D'Antoni

Dearest Nene,
I have been a part of your life the past 10 1/2 years. You were not a man of many words unless it was about politics, LSU, history, or your job. I am so happy to be an Amato. Over the 10 years I too have grown to love LSU football, Endymion, fine Italian dining, Disney World, and hot tea. I am mostly proud to have given you 3 grand babies! It has been a joy making many memories with you... Birthdays, holidays, games, trips, and even just hanging out. I always wondered if I was a good enough daughter-in-law for you...I hope I was! I am at peace knowing you are one of our angels looking down on us! The kids and I love you and will miss you till we meet again!
Love your DIL,

Becky and Dominic,I worked for Frank as a piping designer at Shell. Also I was in a carpool with him. He was a well respected engineer/manager. He represented the true New Orleans spirit. On flights between Houston and New Orleans there were times that we talk with each other. There is a song "What it Means to Miss New Orleans" Like the song we can say what it means to miss Frank.

Becky, So sorry to hear about Frank. He was a tough and caring person. I remember well the LSU/ Tulane battles back in the day in Shell's Gentilly Office. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. with Love

To Frank's family, our thoughts and prayers are with you. Frank was one of my favorite supervisors at Shell, and as one of the founding fathers of OE&C group, his legacy lives on in the offshore industry. We will miss him dearly!

Dear Becky, Dominic, Michael and Family, I extend my deepest sympathy to all of you on FRank's passing. If we would look up the word, friend, in the dictionary, Frank's picture would be there. He was a great friend. I have many memories since that first day in the Pentagon when Frank and I met. The dinners on Dumaine street, Mardi Gras, trip to Jackson for Ole Miss game, etc....I will miss FRank very much. My prayers are with all of you and will continue forever. Love, Dick

It was with great sadness that I read about Frank's passing in today's paper. Our sympathy goes to Becky and the Amato family. Frank was one of the best guys I ever met. When we moved to Metairie in 1973, he took me under his wing. He asked me to join his work carpool, invited us to a game at Tiger stadium and an Endymion extravaganza. He was such a great person. Our paths crossed many times in the following years, and he was always kind and generous to me. I will always remember Frank fondly.

Kindest Regards,
Dave and Yvonne Drane

Mr. Frank: You will always be in my heart! I will continue to think of you every time I have my donuts and coffee! I will forever be blessed to have known you and Mrs. Becky. Love you!

Mrs. Becky: My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family - Mr, Frank was one of a kind and loved by so many. God Bless and love y'all!

Thank you, Frank, for bring your wonderful joyous light into my life. Just thinking of you makes me smile. May your family find ease in your passing though such memories. I am so grateful for knowing you.

Becky, I was so sorry to hear of Frank's passing. He was a great friend and I wish I could have seen you all more ofter. I will miss out famous "quick game" Casino cards. He always beat the pants off of me. I first met Frank in 1961 where he and Bob shared a room in the Pentagon dorms. We remained friends all of these years. He will be sadly missed. I am so glad you have such a large family to draw support from at this sad time. Vi and I send our most heart felt sympathies for your loss.

I worked with Frank at Shell many years ago. He impressed me with his dedication to Shell and his work ethics. May his family find peace in knowing he is now safe with his maker.

Mr. Frank: We will miss you now, but know we will see you again. Still tell the story of you asking me to get your coffee when I first met you, and how we became such friends. It was always so much fun later to see folks so horrified when I would ask if you needed coffee & to bring you your coffee in meetings (and how they said I should stand up for myself!). No doubt you are already organizing a crew to build a platform or two behind those pearly gates (and making sure they are on schedule & budget). Maybe now you can eat some toast that has butter on it! We celebrate your life and will keep your memory in our hearts. God Bless your family who you clearly loved very much. Much Love, Mary P (Houston, TX)

Mrs Becky, Dominic and Family,
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate Mr Frank's life. I have such fond memories of Mr Frank at all the Newman soccer games. The Amato family was always so warm and welcoming to us at these games and we always enjoyed watching them with Mr Frank and Mrs Becky. My heart is saddened by the loss of Mr Frank. Please know that I am keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Love you, all!
