Very sorry to hear about Franks passing. We worked together for many years at the Dep't of Sanitation in Merrick, NY. Frank was my driver for probably at least five years, and a colleague and friend for over 20 years. I always remember how fast he talked and what a good, caring person he was. My condolences to Franks family.
