Geneva, I read about Frank's passing. I am so sorry, I remember Frank very well while I was growing up on Sanford St. He was a good man who always treated us well.

For 22 years we appreciated having Frank as our "across the street" neighbor, and enjoyed his spontaneous bursting into song at any hour of the day. Our sincere condolences to the Conners family.
