Joanie, so sorry for your loss. Frank was a good friend and he helped me a lot with paramedic “stuff” Debbie and have you in our thoughts and prayers!

Dear Joanie, It is with deep regrets to hear of Frank's passing. I am sure my successes in nursing began with my associations with Frank at CHSN. He was such a great guy and friend. Our trips to study at the Rite Spot are notable and a way to get away from the girls. My prayers are with you at this sad time. He was certainly a great person and a very caring nurse who will be remembered by many.

Dear Joanie, My most heartfelt condolences on the loss of your dear Frank. What a gentle man he was. He was so accomplished and yet so humble. Our Lady is surely by his side. You and your family are in my prayers.
