Uncle frank was a loving man who always would offer me wine... But I don't drink! He was so generous and kind. I loved his veggie garden and he was so proud of it. I sold me his trailer at a 'family' discount rate... So thank you again. I plan on keeping forever because I do say to everybody it was my Uncle Frank's and he practically gave it to me. That trailer is special to me. I still remember his smile when I came over and picked it up. So saddened and at least he can hang out with my brother, Anthony. Heaven gained an angel and you can beleive he will be making wine for everybody else up there. I'm sure Anthony would have a glass or two. Miss you uncle Frank ♥️

Bernadette, you and Frank where the best neighbors anyone could have asked for. Twenty-five years living next door to you was so much fun. We raised our children and watched them grow. I’ll never forget Frank. He always had a smile on his face and was such a gentle man in all ways. You two were a wonderful couple and raised a beautiful family. My heart is so heavy since I heard of this wonderful friend had passed away. I will never forget Frank and I will continue all my prayers for all of you. Sending my hugs and love to all of you. Love, Anita

He will be very much missed. To my sister the children and grandchildren you are in my prayers every day. I feel your loss and I will miss him very very much. May God keep up your strength through these times of Sorrow. Only he could help us through these times. I will remember the wonderful times we shared together. I basically grew up with him as a child. I will miss everything about her. Especially are fun times at the camper. It will be very hard going back and not seeing him there. Again from our family to you, you will be kept in our prayers. We love you very very much

My deepest condolences to Bernadette, Vince, Phil, and Anna Maria, your families, and Toto. I have so many great memories of our families being together for holidays and Sundays growing up. I remember sitting on Franco’s lap while he and my father spoke at the kitchen table in Woodridge. The great meals that Bernadette made and fresh vegetables from Franco in the summer. Going downstairs on Sunnyside to fill the wine. Franco telling Vince, Phil, and me to quiet down while we were being loud in the basement at both houses. It was great to be with family back then and such wonderful memories. RIP Franco we are all praying for you and your family. With Love, Rob Albian and the Albian Family
