We loved Mr. Fred so much! He was a great neighbor and pseudo grandfather for us both. Our daughter Grace was his buddy and we have some great memories of her growing up with him! All our love to Nancy. Xo.

The family was exemplary, but passionate and patient at the same time. They are all true patriots and it was my honor to have been able to be there to give my best as I could. May they be blessed.

Our fondest memory is of our trip to Copenhagen, Denmark, where the four of us were married over 40 years ago. The fun times enjoying the different foods and the sight seeing, especially the tiny statue of "the little mermaid."
Love you my friend, you will never be forgotten.
