Dear Dotty I am so sorry I cannot be with you at this time. I will always miss my favorite cousin. I saw this poem and I felt it was written just for Frank.
God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be
So He put His arms around you
and He whispered, "Come to me".
A golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands at rest
God broke my heart to prove to me
He only takes the best.
Love and prayers to all of you.
Your Southern Cousins

DEAR DOT AND FAMILY,
PAT AND I WERE SORRY TO HEAR OF FRAN'S PASSING. OUR FRIENDSHIP WITH THE REILLY FAMILY GOES BACK TO THE DAYS OF HIS MOTHER AND DAD ON FENNO ST. FRAN,JOHN AND PEGGY ALONG WITH THEIR COUSINS THE SULLIVAN,S
WERE LOYAL FRIENDS TO THE HICKEY FAMILY. BE ASSURED WE WILL KEEP FRAN AND YOUR FAMILY IN OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS AT MASS THIS WEEKEND. MAY HE REST IN PEACE.
How fortunate we were to have our Uncle Fran who together with Auntie Dot made a great couple and built a beautiful family. They lived a true partnership and they did it with style.
Uncle Fran was a full member of the Greatest Generation: a son of parents who came to the USA in search of a better life, a child of the Great Depression who served his country at time of war, and a self-made businessman who built his company literally with his own hands relying on his work ethic and his intelligence. My mother was so proud of her brother.
Uncle Fran was a stand-up guy from the old school who had a soft spot for anyone who was struggling and quietly helped many.
I have so many happy memories of visits to Cape Cod and New York and more importantly seeing that big car rolling up to one of my games or even just for a ride to get ice-cream on a summer evening.
He loved the City of Cambridge and his family and we always knew he was there for us.
Thank you Uncle Fran. God bless you.
So so sorry for your loss. Mr Reilly was such a great person. Always told me how our family (Fennell) was the first to have a phone and no matter what he could remember our number. a true gentleman in every sense of the word. Loved to see his weekly drive by Fenno st! They are having a great party upstairs!
Sending all our prayers and love

Dot, I was so sad to hear about Frank's passing. I often thought of him and how kind he was to us as our oilman. He will be missed. - Pauline and Maurice
Dear Dot, I send my deepest sympathies to you and your family at this sad time. May Fran rest in peace. May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, the rain fall softly on your fields, and until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
Sincerely, Paul Benoit Pilot Class of 75
