Date of Birth: October 20, 1972
For those of you who don’t know who I am, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Martin and Frank was my best friend. From the first day we met, the 2 short years that I’ve known him, we had many similarities and you could say that we were inseparable.
I’ve known Frank to be an articulate, warm hearted, generous and loving individual. After having the privilege of meeting and spending time with
Frank’s family, it was no coincidence or question in my mind where these values were founded. You could say that I looked up to Frank, he was like the brother that I never had. Every time I needed Frank he was always there. He helped me grow on many levels and develop into a better person.
We had great energy whenever we were together, nothing could stop us! Our spirits remained young and free. When Frank and I entered a room, people took
notice. Frank had a great personality as well as a wonderful sense of humor, which gave him the best rebuttals around. We turned Manhattan
upside-down. I have more stories than Walt Disney of the great times we had together. You could say that we lived everyday to the fullest. Memories with Frank will always remain the fondest in my heart.
I will never forget how Frank was always concerned for others before himself. He wanted me to do well in life, and I loved him for that.
Ironically, I recently remember him telling me, “Marty do you think we are going to be friends forever”? I replied, “Sure why not” and then he said,
“Do you think we are going to see each other in heaven”? I said, “Frank, we have to go somewhere, we are made from energy and in physics energy only
transforms and isn’t lost.” I didn’t understand what he was getting at, but I strongly believe that we will see each other when my time is up. I know I
will have other friends in the future, but none of them will ever compare or come close to the friendship that I had with my best friend Frank.
Frank, if you could hear me: ( tu serai sempre nel mio cuore ) You are always in my heart (in Italian)
