Tanis & The Crocitto Family,

Frank was a very important part of our lives. He was a stepdad,
father-in -law and most importantly a grandfather to our children. He was a great grandfather. Our kids will miss him greatly and we will too. We were all so saddened by his sudden passing. We will miss his wise advice and that hearty laugh of his. As well as his potato sticks, favorite hot dogs and frog legs!! He was definitely one of a kind. Alyssa wants to know "Who is going to take all the pictures now?" I told her she does. She said "I can't that was grandpa's job." Rest in peace Frank. I hope your reunion with Rusty is great! All our love to his family.

To Tanis,

We were so sorry to hear about Frank's passing. We just visited with him at Etowah this past October, and I got to play some croquet with him there. I remember when both you and Frank received trophies at Etowah in 2010. He beat me in the finals to take the winner's trophy. I was at a croquet tournament last week when I learned of your loss. Other players there knew Frank and remarked what a nice guy he was.

Dear Tanis,
We just heard about Frank's untimely death. Joe plays tennis with Mo. I had mentioned that Facebook sent a notice about your birthday and Joe mentioned it to Mo, that's how we found out about Frank. We have missed you since you left Sun City. You both were such fun to be with -- square dancing, going to the Chinese buffet, dinner and then dancing at a club, and just being together. Please know that you will both be in our prayers and you especially in our thoughts. Much Love.
