Condolences & Memories (7 entries)

  • Frankie was part of a group of schoolmates, Eileen, Ralph, Emile who were surrogate babysitters, dragging E’s little sister on their escapades… "knock on ginger", tintin runaway (a form of cricket, I think), allies in the snow, smoking ‘real’ grass on the future site of St. Mike’s, hide and seek. Sad…they are all gone. - Posted by: Wilma Hewitson Parasiuk (friend) on: Nov 16, 2022

  • So sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. As soon as I saw his name the memory it evoked was “Hi. My name is Cliff. Why don’t you drop in sometime.” Silly joke but we all laughed so hard we were crying! - Posted by: Cindy Schulz (High school friend to Rhonda) on: Nov 13, 2022

  • Frank was a part of my life as a little girl. He and my father, Laurie Degryse (aka Smokey), played in the Cavaliers together. When my Dad died, Frank was one of the people I called to share our sad news. And, of course he came to pay his respects to my Dad. RIP Frank. - Posted by: Deb Degryse Clark (family friend) on: Nov 13, 2022
