    Prayers and sincere condolences to all the family most of whom I know and care about. We had so many fun times at the beach. Once “sister” and Billy took me out on their boat and it included lunch. Fond memories of many gatherings at Ann’s, Betty’s (“sister” - it was a long time before I knew her name.), and Tony’s mom’s home.

    Frankie, Beverly and your Dad Billy, we were so sorry to hear about your Mom, wife. Growing up together on Friendly Lane, made it seem like we were family. I know you are going to miss her dearly, but she's in a better place than us now. What a happy reunion she has had, seeing her family! You all are in our thoughts and prayers, and we love y'all.
