Donna and I send our prayers to Barb and all of Frankie's family. Looking at his picture reminds of Frankie and all the guys from Roseland having good times. I considered Frank a true friend. It's a shame we lived so far away. I'll have one for him. God has a good person to help watch and protect us. May Frank's soul rest in peace.

Dear Kim and family - Please accept my condolences on the lost of your Father. The times when I met him, he was so nice. I'm sorry I did not make the wake as something came up that could not be avoided. I just want to let you know that you have wonderful memories of him and going forward, they will give you lots of comfort. Give your Mom a hug for me. You will need each other more than ever. My prayers are with all of you. Take care.

Frankie was always lots of fun when I would see him and Barbara at weddings and quite a few times in Uncle Ed and Aunt Lorraine Standerski's house on Harrison Street in Cal City, where we would gather for a special occasion like a birthday. Always smiling and upbeat, much like his exuberant Dad! He had a special fondness for all of us close relatives. On one occasion, he told me about his "car record player" he bought that worked

Dear Barb, Madge and Jim,

So sorry to hear of Franks passing. When my dad told me I had immediate flashbacks to the old neighborhood and all the good times with Frank and your entire family. You know how much I loved your mom and dad too. Please accept our sincere sympathy at your loss. I would have been there had time permitted.

There are not many people in one's life that get to see you graduate grammar school, high school, get married, and have kids. I have been very lucky to have you dad. For 33 years,you were always there, driving us to basketball games, roller wheels, coaching our softball teams. Thanks for always being there and thanks for the great memories. I will miss you dearly. And I will miss hearing your voice say Hey Mo.
Thanks for being my "dad".
Love your "daughter",
