Amanda Goodale   RIVERHEAD, NY
On February 15th, 2014 Frank Trentacoste left this earth. Frankie was only 22 years old. Frankie was a son, a brother, a nephew, a grandchild, a friend and an irreplaceable individual.  He had a personality that lit up any room and put smiles on every face. Frank will forever be missed and shall remain as a reminder to all of how beautiful life is and how we should cherish every moment of everyday.  
As most parents never plan for such a tragedy, we are asking for any donations or assistance for the Trentacoste family.  This is an unimaginably painful experience for them and any contribution to aide with the costs would be forever appreciated.

His Journey's Just Begun

Don't think of him as gone away
his journey's just begun,
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.

Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.

Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.

And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched...
for nothing loved is ever lost
and he was loved so much.

The outpouring of support, love and generosity has been extremely humbling. This is proof that there are genuinely good people in the world and that "happiness" really does exist. I know the Trentacoste family is extremely grateful for all the support from friends, family and the community.

We still have our two handsome and kind hearted boys Michael and Phillip along with our daughter-in-law Eileen and our son's girlfriend Victoria as well as our entire family who's love and support will help us. We have read all of your posts and are truly warmed by your love and support for us and our son Francesco (Frankie). We consider all of you family and we will always welcome you all to our home. We believe that God's gifts in life are love, family and friends. Please hold your children tight and tell them how much you love them. Thank you all so very much, we love you.

I did not know Frank, but was good friends with his father for many years. I can't imagine the pain for his family as I know what a close family they are. Rest in peace Frank.
