  1. I am so saddened by Frank’s passing. Frank was a long-term volunteer of the ABCD North End/West End NSC, even after his health complications. He had so many wonderful stories about growing up in the North End. He told me when he was only 11 or so that he would go down to Hull with his brother and they would go to the beach all day and sleep on the beach overnight. His father just said, “Be back Sunday night!” My heart goes out to Mary and the rest of his family. He would always be beaming when he announced a new great-grandchild was on the way. Love to all during this time.
