  1. Thank you for the livestream. Frank meant so much to many of us. In his first year in SA as a newly ordained priest he took me and a few othe boys from poor families to Cape Point for an outing which otherwise would have been impossible for us. He later gave us guidance in the YCW. A quiet revolutionary community leader with a beautiful smile.
