He could have been a film star, if he had wanted to, But Canon Frank became a priest
To teach us all he knew. He set a standard as a priest that I have long admired, wearing his collar proudly in the way he was attired.
In the great old age of 91 he celebrated mass, guiding four generations who considered him first class.
He had a really golden voice and a heart as good as gold.
People loved his homilies and the stories that he told. "Christ must be the centre of everything we do", was Canon Frank's advice to us, he always held that view.
He longed to see children at Mass, he loved to see them there, it brought a smile to Canon's face to see children in prayer.
In wintry morns, some white with snow cold, frosty, and, severe, he celebrated early mass they came from far and near.
Being an inspiration to us all, he was our guiding light, in the church of Ballybricken He was our hearts delight.
Faith of our father is living still because of men like Frank When I heard he had passed away, my heart just simply sank.
To his sisters Pauline and Sophie, Kit and Margaret too, His brothers Eddie and Anthony,
My condolences to you.
