  • Paul Corcoran  - Sorry for your loss!
    Very sorry to hear of Frank's passing! Our history together goes way back to the housing on Suffolk Street and St Patrick's School. I remember reading comic books on the floor while Frank's dad, Mike, would rock in his chair smoking his cigar watching tv and talking to me. I never even called him Mr. Farrah. It was always Mike! His father always called him Francis while we called him Franny. He wasn't known as Frank until much later! I remember his brothers and sister too but, his mother was gone before then. I'm very sorry to see him pass, but, I know his father is calling him Francis up there right now!
