Rest in Peace,
Walk the Walk: If all who enjoyed Frank's parties would contribute the cost of their daily latte, his property would be safe.

Much has been written here about the shameful way Frank Giglio has been treated and the illegal, not just crooked, way his property was stolen. Now, Lily writes that, although he is now on the monthly pay plan, there is a chance that he might also lose his mother's property. She herself is in terrific pain and so less able to do her usual, magnificant job of helping others. She wrote, here realneo.us/content/calling-all-cops-tremont-area-frank-giglio-has-petty-warrant-unpaid-traffic-fines-high-alert#comments that:
"FRANK GIGLIO IS IN IMMEDIATE NEED OF FINANCIAL & LEGAL ASSISTANCE, AND CARPENTRY LABOR & MATERIAL DONATIONS.
I have medical issues and am not able to provide much legal or financial assistance to Frank Giglio- at the moment. However, I believe the community should step up and help this poor guy."
It isn't that hard. You can send money via Paypal with only a person's email address.
But for all the ink that has been spilled, sympathy poured out in generous measure, when it comes to spending even a little bit of money, no one has sent even a single dollar. No one, except one old lady living on Social Security. That, Lily tells me, is the only person.
Those who enjoyed his parties? Not one reciprocated.
Dennis Kucinich, who had read coverage of this issue in 2009 and was concerned about it? Nope.
Those who wrote about poor Frank? Not even the difference between a Starbuck's latte and some coffee brought from home, has been donated.
One individual wrote long ago about a dream for realneo, mentioning that he had written about Frank's plight, and that realneo had "heightened the collective responsibility of many in our community." Not very many, just one old lady.
One fundraiser in 2009 was enough, duty done?
It's "old news"?
Or "what does it matter"?
