Just got back in from the Friday evening viewing and subsequent dinner and
talks. If tonight's attendance is any indication - and I'm sure it is -
Saturday's procession from the church to the cemetery will bring Tom's River
traffic to a grinding halt. I sincerely hope the police have been warned as
there will probably be a mile of cars making that sad journey.
tonight at the funeral home, we found that the line of people
respects was two or three deep and wrapped through the building to
the end of
the parking lot and then had started up the other side of the parking
There were literally HUNDREDS of people. I believe we stood in line for
to an hour to finally get to Diane, Frankie, Tiffany, and Frankie's wife
(whose name I can not at this moment recall - sorry)
When a bunch of the
OSHIT crew left to go to a restaurant, the line seemed to
still be the same
length as when we arrived - there were that many people. The
told us that in all his years there, he had never seen anywhere
number of people attend a viewing.
Frank touched many, many lives. If you
can possibly do so, please remember to
send a check for little Frankie V's
education fund. We need to make something
good come of this loss.
