Frank Degnan Ridley, wonderful father, companion, son, grandson, brother, uncle, cousin, nephew and friend, left us on July 9, 2016. He was 23 years young. It was not the big things you did, it was the smallest gesture ... a smile, a kind word, a letter that lit up his world. He was all about the hugs: no one could leave without a big Frankie bear-hug and his big, beautiful smile. He brought such incredible joy to his family and friends, especially the children. I know he is dancing in heaven.
