So so sorry to hear this news. I loved Frank back in high school. Loved his whole family. They were so so good to me. It’s been many years and I am not aware of the circumstances that are at play here. I just wish to pass on my love and blessings to Franks family. You were the best people. Bless all of you.

I will never forget my first kiss with the Italian Stallion. He had grape bubble gum in his mouth and I threw up. That was the beginning and end of our romance at 16 years old and we have laughed about it ever since. We remain dear friends to this day. I will always cherish the laughs, the fun times, and many many memories over the past 45 years. Forever in my heart, always love you and sending love and healing vibes through the universe to all his family and friends.
