Aunt Frannie fittingly pesasd on today, as the angels called home one of their own, just in time for Christmas. Frannie was truly a wonderful gift to this world. She brought joy and passion to her days, the likes of which are seldom seen. For those privileged to have known her, Frannie will forever bring about a smile. Her breathtaking and unmistakable soprano voice will resonate in our hearts and minds for all time. Aunt Frannie was a breath of fresh air. Her brief stay with us brought about love and warmth for so many. Frannie embodied the true spirit of love and kindness, and she touched countless lives around the globe. We should all be so fortunate.Not a day will pass that we don’t tip our [Yankee] caps to a genuine New Yorker, the kindest of souls, and a truly magical person. We love you, Aunt Frannie, and we will think of you always. With love and the fondest of memories,Caleb Ginsberg
