Are you out of your mind Ariana and Frankie Grande just lost their beloved grandfather Frank Grande. Have a heart for them, my prayers and thoughts go out to my 4th family they need a lot of love and prayers God please wrap grandpa Frank in your arms this is a time to be serious not a time to be goofing around ‘I am heartbroken because of what happened to a family member that I love dearly.’ I will be here for yaw whenever yaw need anybody to talk to. Ariana and Frankie I know it’s hard to let a family member go but look on the bright side at least he’s in a better place. And Mrs and Mr Grande Butera and to Ariana and Frankie Grande,
I know how yaw all feel right now of the lost of Yaw’s Grandfather even through he’s not here, he is risen. ‘The bible says that if I be lifted up, I’ll draw all men to me’ I’m giving yaw my heart and I will always be here if yaw need anybody to talk to. Believe me I know how yaw all feel because it wasn’t to long ago that I lost a close friend of mine and I still miss her on daily basis. But God told me that it will be alright.. I still cry because I miss my dearest friend.
But imagine Grandpa Frank is not stuffing nor hurting anymore he’s up their with my love ones that went on before him… because God was. Also God was ready for your grand paw to come home to be with him. I know that you wanted grand paw frank to stay down here with yaw but he couldn’t you see god has a purposes for everything, grand paw frank isn’t surffing with the pain anymore he’s healed, alive & well. God still has a plan for all of our lives someday we will leave this old and rotten body and be in our new spiritual bodies. He’s having him a good ol time where the light won’t go out up in heaven I still here a little voice inside my head that’s saying I’m alright. My soul, heart, prayers and thoughts will continue to be in rememberce of your precious grandfather. Love yaw’lls best friend and fan Beth, Summer, and Kids
My kids said, ‘they will be praying for yaw’ Lots and Lots of love and prayers go out to Ariana Grande and the Grande family.

P.s we all love you dearly and we will continue to pray for yaw. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Frankie should stay on big brother for his family as something to celebrate about after all of the grieving, it would also do his Grandfather proud. (R.I.P Frank Grande) x

“Devastated” “Leave the show” Yeah, I guess they didn’t see this coming: 90 years old and cancer. He should have lived another 20 years!
