    We were fortunate to meet Frank and Gail through Tony and Jill Depeppo. Frank was a really good man and good friend. He was passionate about his family and friends and he loved to cook.. and he was a pretty good baker too. Frank had a great sense of humor, he was always laughing or gigling about something.. it seemed like nothing could make him angry. Frank will truely be missed.. Our most sincere condolences go out to all his family and friends who have lost somone very special.
