I just learned today about Frank and I was shocked and saddened to hear about his passing. He and I were good friends when we were both teenagers. I never would have known about this, if it had not been for bumping into another classmate from LHS, who told me about his battle and succumbing to Leukemia. I offer my heartfelt sympathy and prayers to his mom, brothers and sister and the rest of his extended family. I hope you can all find comfort in the fact that he is no longer suffering from this dreadful decease. I went through the same thing with my own father. Alan

Memories of all of the good times our family\'s enjoyed growing up across the street of each other in Lakeland come flooding back. The DiCesare\'s, the 101% I-talian family with Joe, Frank, Tommy and Rosanna, and the McCrudden\'s, the IRISH/Italian family with Sharon, Shawn, Patricia, and Patrick. Together we ruled the end of Gibson Road South. It was a special time in a special place, and only came around once in life. Please accept my deepest sympathy, and prayers.
