To Mrs Galante and the entire Galante Family,

Just found out about Frank's death.  My deepest sympathies to you all.  I remember him as being the consummate professional, both in his actions and appearance.  He loved and served the funeral profession like very few others.  NJ funeral directors were lucky to have him representing them in his many roles and as the first National President. He will be missed, but leaves a beautiful legacy in the memories we have and the family he has left behind.  Frank and his family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Brenda and Frank,

I am truly saddened to hear of your recent loss and would like to express my sincere condolences to you and your family on the passing of your father.
He was a wonderful man and I think back gratefully to the times we spent together, especially at your wedding, again at my 70th birthday celebration and on our trip to Sicily and whenever I would come to the United States
Unfortunately, I will not be able to join you for his funeral but I will be thinking of you and praying that God will sustain and strengthen you as you navigate the difficult days ahead. Please accept my sincere condolences.
Uncle Brent

Dear Fran,
What can I say? Frank has been ailing for years and we knew that this day would come. But that does not lessen the loss.  Please accept my deepest sympathy.
I just want you to know that I am thinking of and praying for you and your whole family at this time.
May our Lord bless and comfort you during this time of grief.

Dear Rachel and Frankie,
Both of you grew up surrounded by death. One might think that makes it easier to deal with when it affects one personally. I know that isn’t true.
I just want both of you to know that I am feeling your loss; your grandfather was a wonderful man. Be assured of my love and prayers for you at this difficult time.
Uncle Brent

Dear Frances and the Galante Family,
  As long I can remember the Galante's were always a fond memory to my parents, Ralph and Virginia D'Amato.  You have always been kind and understanding as well as warm and friendly.  My father always reminded us that he went to school with Frances and she never changes!  You have comforted us in our times of need and please know you are in our prayers.  Sincerely, The D'Amato Family

To the Galante family,

Frank Galante was the epitome of class.  I managed cemeteries for the Archdiocese of Newark for nearly 30 years and witnessed Frank's professionalism up close and personal.  I can remember with fondness the entire extended family including Frank's mother.  Frank was handsome and dapper and slightly intimidating as his obituary said, funny, but was always first rate with me.  His families came first and he ran a top notch funeral business.  The death care industry has lost a giant.  Frank rest in peace and may God give your family strength during their time of sorrow.

Dear Frances, Frank, Victor, Steven,et al,
I just learned of Frank's death on June 20,2016 and was totally shocked, even though I knew he was ill for some time. My heartfelt condolences and prayers are with you. As a young funeral director starting in Funeral Association work, especialy when NJ, NY and Pa were in the same NFDA district, Frank's hard work and professionalism  preceded him before my first meeting with him. That first meeting took place in Las Vegas when he was elected President of NFDA. May he rest in peace and may God Bless you and your family,
especially you Frances. Sincerely, Francis (Frank) R. Galante
