From: Jeff, Rhonda Comeau and family
Helen Marie, Ron, Rob, Angie, Andrea and families, Our hearts ache for your loss. Frank was an incredible man who meant a lot to our family. His good nature and big heart was always welcoming. As a young man far from home you and the entire Beirnes clan welcomed me into your family like one of your own and extended that love to Rhonda and my girls. Although life has taken me across Canada I always refer to Moggie as my second home and the Beirnes' as my adopted family.  As circumstance has it we are unable to be with you at this time but know that we are with you in heart as you say goodbye to an incredible man. Love from all of us. Jeff, Rhonda , Kayla, Kelsey and family. xoxo
