- My heart once again goes out to the residents whom I took care of for over 21 years as I know they also besides myself will miss Frank. Frank was our Master Gardener and loved to get plants/flowers for his birthday and christmas. he always planted flowers and tomatoes all the years I worked at Quincy Terrace and was always proud to show anyone what he had grown. Ill never forget when I retired I gave each one of the residents something from me personally and frank was at the very end and he wanted my stocking hat really bad as i wore it there to visit the residents as it was in January and very cold outside. I gave Frank my hat and he had that very cute grin on his face when he thanked me. Id see him at workshop and he cried and asked me when I was coming back to work as he really missed me. I had to turn my head to wipe the tears from my eyes as that pulled on my heart strings.Frank was genuine. I will miss him very much. Sincerely J.R. Moran
