Messages of Condolence

  1. Lee Dabkey condolence:

    I will always remember Frank as a devoted grandfather that always went to his grandkids baseball games. One season he helped me coach his granddaughter, Allison. During that season, we spent a lot of time together. We talked a lot of baseball…. he being a Cub fan and me being Sox fan. When I watched the Cubs win the World Series last year, the first person I thought of was Frank. I’m so happy he got a chance to see that. Prayers to the family.

  2. Cindy Ciesielski condolence:

    Sending thoughts and prayers to Kathy and entire family. Kathy, I haven’t seen your dad in many years but I remember him as a kind man with a genuine smile. Know that you all loved him well! May God give you His comfort during this difficult time.

  3. Dora J Arnold condolence:

    I’m so sorry Kathy about your dad. He will be at peace and pain free. Jesus will meet him at the Gate. God bless you and your family.

  4. Jim Sporleder condolence:

    I will always remember grandpa V at our little league games when I coached Steve and his teammates. He was always there – and so supportive. I could tell how much he loved his family and loved baseball. He will be greatly missed by all.

  5. Tony & Connie Scavuzzo and Ruth Schwass condolence:
