  33. I remember swimming in the lake with Frankie’s kids when we were young and living next door in Cororooke. Frankie and my mum (Marge Mahoney) would sit back in their beach chairs and watch us kids while chatting away to each other. Spending time playing with the Boylan kids was always fun. Such good times and fun memories. Frankie and Pinky were the best neighbours, always available if needed. A wonderful, thoughtful and friendly lady was Frankie. I will never forget you. I’m so sorry I cant be there to farewell such a wonderful woman. I am thinking of you Judy, Stephen, David, Susan, Phillip and Kathy at this sad time.
