To offer online condolences visit www.wright-beard.com When I read about Frank's passing in Newsday, all I could think of was our early years when the cousins would visit either our house or yours on Sand Hill Road. Too many years have elapsed with few words exchanged between the families. My prayers are with you at this time of sorrow. Rest assured the Maher family will keep Frank and the Daverin Family in their prayers. God bless, Cousin Rich Frankie D. Long time friend, neighbor and fellow Marine. Semper Fi Brother. Rest in peace Red. See you on the other side. With deepest sinpathy,Rick and family.
