    Maria, we share your sadness for you and your family. Frank was like a brother to my dad, and equally like an uncle to me. I will miss him dearly.
    I can not put into words the joy that I experienced at the times we celebrated accordian parties together, and the times our family spent at your home. I know he is proud of his family, as he should be, and of all the accomplishments that he worked so hard to achieve. He is a man I will never forget.

  • Joe & Sophie Mocnik, and Doris Maria Bregolisse says:

    Dearest Maria and family,
    Our deepest sympathies on the loss of your husband and father. May you be comforted in this time of sorrow. Our thoughts are with you.
    Frank was a good man.
