Dear Jimmy and Family. Your Uncle Frank was more than a TV Celebrity to me, he was a far away friend, and a relief from everyday sameness. I am old too ( 89 ) and I looked forward to Uncle Franks quips. I will miss him. My sincerest and saddist condolences go out to you, and everyone who was in everyday contact with him ... In your loving tribute to him, tears were in my eyes too... May God Bless You All... Norm

To all JKL friends and family - what a guy your Uncle Frank was. He was so humble, kind and could laugh at himself. Jimmy Kimmel has a way of finding humor in just about everyone and Uncle Frank was terrific material. I miss him & I knew him only from JK LIVE.

He was such a treasure to have on JKL, as he seemed willing to participate in any aspect of the show. For years now, since watching the show, any time we have cake, we think of Uncle Frank! All fans and anyone associated with the show will sorely miss him! Remember Jimmy and family, and Aunt Chippy and daughters, to let the good memories play over and over in your hearts! May God help your families through this most difficult time, and please know you are included in our prayers.

August 25, 2011
So sorry for you loss. Uncle Frank and all of Jimmy's family made that show not only funny, but made each one of us know that our families are full of humor and in the long run we all have the same type of lives and struggles. The show will not be the same without Uncle Frank and I know that Jimmy, Aunt Chippy, Cousin Sal, and Guimerro will go on but with an enormous hole in their hearts. I do believe even from the grave that Uncle Frank will still give them many laughs and hopefully us too. I will truly miss all of the stunts between Uncle Frank and Aunt Chippy, they were the absolute funniest skits on the show and they made me want more. My condolences to all of the family, co-workers, and fans as Uncle Frank will never be forgotten and can never be replaced. Thanks for the memories Uncle Frank!!!

May you rest in peace Frank. Our deepest sympathies to your wonderful family fom our family, the Battaglia's. While we laughed and loved you on JKL, we remember you as the wonderful man and friend you were to us when we were neighbors on East 1st St. in Bklyn. You were truly the kindest man. I remember when you took us to Prospect Park and to Marlou Garments for our dreaded school uniforms along with your girls and Chippy. Also, always getting my brother Joey to fall for the "I don't think this cake smells right trick" at every birthday party. Good times and loving memories. God Bless Chippy, Anne, Sally, Mickie, Jimmy and all of your loving family at this difficult time.

August 24, 2011
I'm so sorry for the loss of Uncle Frank. Having him and sometimes Chippy as part of the program was great fun and truly and endearing part of the show. What was important to me as a viewer was the humanity of it. In an age where faster, slicker and sort of skating from relationship to relationship, friendships and family included, having family members on the show was a grounding position that said we really can all just enjoy each other, have a huge laugh as we do it and still be very successful! Thank you, Jimmy, for giving Uncle Frank to us for so many years. You are both great role models. My sympathy to Jimmy + Chippy + the entire family
August 24, 2011
I loved Uncle Frank, he was the best. I would like to send my deepest sympathy to his whole family,and all the members of the staff on the Jimmy Kimmel show. He will be missed.
August 24, 2011
Uncle Frank made many happy through the power of laughter. The "Happy God"-1Timothy 1:11, will bring joy once again to Uncle Frank's family by means of the resurrection, right here on here on earth, where we all can continue to enjoy laughter and joy with him once again.-Isaiah 26:19.

I wish we did. He was a wonderfull man.A part of the show will be missed without him. Jimmy and your family our condolence to all of you. Not to be funny.

Uncle Frank came into our homes, as a familiar face because he was so much like our own uncles.

He brought laughter, even as Jimmy toured his apartment showing his neat line of shoes.

He wasn't smooth or well rehearsed. He was real and a bit like you and me....

Jimmy, and to all who loved him. My heart goes out to you. Thanks for sharing him with us. We felt a little better at the end of the day, seeing Uncle Frank.

Good Night and God Bless

August 23, 2011
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
