Terri and Tammy,
My sincerest condolences for the passing of your dad. After 20 years of being neighbors, we shared a lot of stories of our families. In looking through these posts for a friend, I saw your dad's information. The time was exactly August 14, at 10:30. So thinking and praying for you at this difficult time. The loving care you had for your parents was a clear testimony of their legacy to you.
Sincerely,

I will never forget how Frankie and his brothers toughened up a skinny little kid, "me" by playing football in the yard on holidays. Frankie always told me that someday I would be a quarterback. Well I never became quarterback for organized football but I was pretty good at pick-up games. Frankie, and his brothers had a lot to do with my growing up and being able to take care of myself physically and mentally. Thank you and God Bless You Frankie.

The angels looked down from heaven one night.
They searched for miles afar,
And deep within the distance
They could see a shining star.

They knew that very instant
That the star was theirs to gain,
So they took you up to heaven,
Forever to remain.

Look down on us from heaven.
Keep us free from hurt and pain.
You'll always be within our heart
Until we meet again.

Aunt Dorothy, Steve, Elaine, Terri, Tammy and Mike and all of the grand-children and great-grand-children my thoughts and prayers are with you all with the loss of Uncle Frank. He was an amazing person and knowing him made my life better. He was always ready to listen and to offer advice when asked and he still has Kyle baffled with as he says "The penny behind the ear trick." Although I can't be there with all of you in this time of sorrow, I am with you all in spirit and are keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Love to you all.

Dear Dorothy and family, sorry to read of Frank's
passing. I remember when the Fancelli's were our neighbors on Dorothy Drive. A person couldn't ask for better neighbors. My prayers go out to whole family.
