    Sorry to hear about Frank’s passing. I often think of him. And have wondered if he were still alive. I read the obituary in the Boston Globe and looked on this funeral home website to see if it was the same person I once knew from working at Stop and Shop. We worked together in the Peabody store 50 years ago. Frank shared his knowledge and training with me so that I could become a meat cutter, too. Now retired after 45 years with Stop and Shop myself, I am grateful for having known him and for the opportunity to work with him. Frank was a great guy that I will never forget. My condolences to his family….

    My most sincere condolences to the family. I know the grief you must feel may seem as though it may never truly leave you. But please know that God promises each and every one of us that if we draw close to Him then he will draw close to us – James 4:8. So feel free to approach God in prayer. He is always there to give us true and lasting comfort when we need it the very most. And if you would like to learn more about that promise please visit
