So many memories over the last 25 years...Fred asking little kids everywhere if it was OK for vegetarians to eat animal crackers....Fred telling me to “just drop that anywhere” when I was clumsy...Fred calling me when I was out clothes shopping and ordering me out of the store “Put it down, you don’t need it!” fact, I found that so funny that I would purposely call him when I was in a store just to hear him have a fit!!
I miss you so, Fred.

Fred was a wonderful funny man with whom i share many hours of humor and stories of life.
A kind man that enjoyed people and life.
But always missed his brother who passed to his reward years before him. I hope they will be reunited now. Rest in eternal peace my friend.
