Frank was always one of my favorite ushers to work with at OLOR. Always kind, & generous with his time. He never had a bad thing to say about anyone. He will truly be missed at the 11:30 mass. Best of luck to all of his fine family, some of whom I recently met at Frank's wake. You have my family's condolences.
