Frank,your example on Earth has been so inspiring to me. Although a year has passed since your entrance into eternal life, you are frequently on my mind. I was able to have a mass celebrated in your name today. Wishing you much peace in eternal life. May you rest with the Angels and Saints.

Maria you are my dearest friend. I'll always be there for you. I know Frank was made for you by God. I will miss him, our dinners and breakfast together. We had some great memorable moments,and hanging out for a movie night or just coffee and talk and laughter My heart breaks every time I remember he is not here in body by your side. I'll be forever blessed by all the memories and inspired by how he Loves and serves God.

I am so sorry to hear of Frank's passing. I met him many years ago through Don Snyder and he was such an amazing person. His smile and genuine personality left a lasting imprint on all of the lives he touched. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. May his wonderful memories get you through the difficult times ahead...

After today I have many thoughts and feelings, but one consistent thing that goes through my head is how many people I saw today in Frank's honor. I truly believe that he saved many souls and will continue to as time goes on. As there are many things I can say, I will simply say this; I was truly blessed to have known Frank. All, whether meeting him once, twice, or knowing him for years, were blessed to have experienced a man who lived as Christ did. In many ways I believe that Frank, in the same way Jesus did himself, suffered and died for all of our sins. And as I live each day moving forward, I only hope that I remember to thank God when I wake up and before I go to sleep for blessing my life with knowing Frank. He will never leave my side and I know he will not leave yours as well as the rest. My only regret is that I wish I had spent more time with him and known him longer. I hope and pray that I may live like Frank.

As he always said, God bless and keep the faith.

Aunt Maria,
You gave us one of the greatest gifts when you married uncle Frank. You gave us the best uncle anyone could have wished for. He has always been there for everyone one of us. I consider him my adoptive godfather because he was such a great example in his faith.

Uncle Frank was a once in a lifetime person. He was the greatest listener, no matter what the topic. When you had a conversation with Uncle Frank, his attention was 100% on what you were saying and it made you feel important. Everyone was important to Uncle Frank. He had such a great loving presence and will truly leave a big hole in everyone's hearts.

Everyone is going to have work a lot harder to make up for all that good that uncle Frank did for others and in God's name. I will miss him, but even as I type this now, I can feel the strength from his spirt. I love you both so much.

I am so very sorry to hear of Frankie's passing. Please accept my deepest condolences and know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time. Frankie and I knew each other from way back in the day (school years) and I was also a close family friend. Though it's been such a long time, please know that I was very fond of Frankie, and I am so grateful to have known him.... He will always be remembered with a smile!

Aunt Maria,

I do not want to write this right now, because I do not want to believe this is real. I feel your deep sorrow, as my heart aches terribly. I never questioned his faith, honesty, kindness or love. He was a man of his words.

The only solace I have in this difficult time, is knowing that his spirit will be recognized in heaven, just at it was on earth. I love you both dearly.

See you soon,

Posted by Brianna DiFranco - Oceanside, CA - Family   April 04, 2018

Maria and family, Our hearts go out to you.
Everyone who knew Frank, knew that there was something special about him. His unconditional love, kindness, and support encouraged and inspired so many. He always put others needs above his own. We all have cherished memories of Frank that we will hold forever in our hearts.
Frank lived his life as a true disciple of Jesus. Frank said "Yes" to God. He took up his cross and united it with the cross of Jesus. He offered up all of his sufferings. A true example for us to follow. With Much Love, Kris and Tony Marra

No words can say how deeply saddened I am on the loss of your dearly beloved husband Frank. He was a light from God and his spirit shined even in his most difficult days. He was praying for other souls and now his soul is under God's wing. I pray that you will find comfort and know that he will always be by your side in spirit. Frank was a servant of God and such a happy person. He will be deeply missed. He can now shine with God in eternal happiness.

I was shocked to learn that Frank had passed. He was one of the younger members of the Rionero Club. I enjoyed working with him in the kitchen after monthly Sunday club dinners. He was a strong hard and happy worker who made me feel welcome and was fun to work with and was always smiling. I will miss him very much.

Dear Maria,
Remo and I are so very sorry for your loss. Frank was a 'one of a kind' guy. We will truly miss him - it won't be the same without him. He meant the world to us. Our hearts are so heavy right now for you and for Frank.
Frank had a way of making us feel special, when actually he was the special one! He never focused on himself, rather, on everyone else. We never heard Frank complain, even when he was battling his illness. We know he suffered greatly, but he never showed it.
There were so many great qualities about Frank - his infectious laugh, his story telling (and now to make a longer story even longer), and his willingness to help anyone in need (family, friends and even strangers). Only goodness came from this man he truly outshined us all. His kindness and generosity will never be forgotten. Frank brought so much joy to those who were privileged enough to know him. We are forever grateful having him in our lives we are better because of him.
Frank was an excellent role model for my girls. He always took to the time to talk to them. He listened and provided them with honest advice. He always reminded them how important it was to have God in their lives. My children will always hold a special place in their hearts for Frank.
What we will remember most about Frank was his devotion to God and to the Church. Frank made God a priority in his life. He was, and will continue to be an inspiration to our entire family. Frank is now our guardian angel, and I feel he will be looking out for us.
Maria, we will continue to pray for you during this difficult time. We are here whenever you need us. May the great memories of Frank carry us through the tough days ahead. Frank is at peace now. God is holding him in his arms he is free from pain, there is no more suffering! May Frank enjoy God's glory forever may he rest in peace.

Posted by Remo and Mary DiFranco - Kirtland, OH   March 30, 2018

Maria, Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families at this most difficult time. The picture of him, is exactly how I will always remember seeing him....always a smile, such a joy filled person.

Dear family, I knew Frank from St. Clare and then, pleasantly surprised, as 'our' technician from A-All Comfort. What a joy of a man! Even during his illness he prayed a rosary decade for all those praying for his healing. One day, one hour at a time is the best we can do during this time of healing. Praying that peace comes sooner than later to you.

Dear Maria,

Our family was so blessed to have you and Frank as neighbors to our parents Gene and Betty Robinson.

Frank was a great man and my father truly enjoyed his time with him. Franks words and show of support helped my father so much after the loss of our mother and during my fathers illness.

Your gift in honor of my father for the perpetual mass enrollment from the Sacred Heart Association is the greatest honor and all of us are so thankful that both you and Frank touched our parents lives and provided love and support during the last years of their lives.

Please know how much both of you mean to all of the Robinson family .

Dear Frank,
you and Maria have brought so much happiness into our lives. How can we forget your kindness and willingness to help us at a moment's notice. God gained such a good person and a heck of a worker this week. We love you and we will never forget you.

Posted by Masina & Giuseppe Santangelo - Termoli--Italy - Friend   March 25, 2018

Words cannot express my deepest sympathies of your loss of Frank. His smile was infectious, he smiled with his total heart, which was always outpouring with kindness and love. The last time I saw Frank was while both of our fathers were in the hospital at the same time. I hadn't seen Frank for at least 15+ years, and we stopped in our tracks as we recognized each other, and it was like high school all over. With his dad being so sick, he was so focused on asking about my dad; that kindness was just who Frank was, just so special!
May you find peace and comfort in the memories you hold so deeply in your heart, and know he is now your heavenly guardian angel, always with you, guiding, loving and protecting you forever! ♥

Posted by Debbie Nemeckay - Mentor, OH - Classmate   March 25, 2018

Mrs. Sack, Maria, Vince and Michelle. I was sorry to hear of Frankie's passing. I remember that Frankie always had a smile on his face whenever I would see him. I was able to reconnect with him at St. Clare a few years ago and that smile was still present. May the fond memories you have of him help you all through this difficult time. Rest in Peace at the right hand of the Father Frankie.

Posted by Gary Love - Chagrin Falls, OH - Family Friend   March 25, 2018

Maria, every time we saw Frank he always had a smile on his face and was always in a good mood, he always enjoyed life and was always a happy go lucky person. We will all miss him very much and are thinking of you. Frank and Daniela DeNigris.

Maria, Rodolfo and I are totally devastated at the news of Frank's passing. So sorry for your loss. Our deepest condolences to you and your entire family. Rodolfo said it's not fair that someone who was always smiling and he never saw mad is gone. The last time we saw Frank he had such a big smile on his face and was so happy to see us, despite all the pain and suffering he must have been enduring. I will always remember him that way. Take comfort that his suffering is over and he is now at peace in eternal life.

Maria - My heart broke when I heard that Frank had passed to our Lord. Frank was such a loving and Christian man. Wayne and I enjoyed being with him at Mass on Sundays, and I know how devastated Frank was when Wayne passed in October. Now they are together, and I am sure Wayne met Frank at the Gates of Heaven, and welcomed him. Now they can do their good works together again. I do know how you feel, I am lost without Wayne, but know that he is in our Lord's hands, as Frank is now, too. Peace and prayers to you Maria, and your beautiful families.
