The best friend I ever had so sorry I did not know we spoke when I got of the hospital in January and I kept sending you e-mails until I saw Kimmy post your gravestone on Christmas morning it was a shock. I sent you one last e-mail yesterday my friend and I know that you will see it. Rest in Peace and we will meet again.

My deepest sympathies are with Frank family in this difficult time. Frank made sure we knew we were appreciated and we are truly going to miss him. You always kept us laughing. Made sure we knew that the GreenBay Packers was the best football team ever. Please know that the Collelo family is in my prayers.

So sorry to hear of Franks death. My husband and I sat behind Toni and Frank last week at Free Life Chapel. It was so crystal clear to see the love of God, Toni and FLC that Frank had in his heart. A real man of God!
He truly will be missed.

Dear Toni. I, as one of many of your Girl Scout family, send my sympathies to you and your family. I did not know Frank but he shared you with us Girl Scouts and I understand he was a great GS supporter. I'm sorry I never got a chance to meet him.

My dad was the best father any girl could ask for. He was my best friend and such an amazing person. He loved making people laugh and helping others any way he could. I love and miss you more than words can express, Dad!
