Rita and I will cherish memories of those many times we shared lunch at Panara when you came to town, especially that time when Fred and I got a lot of extra visiting time as we tagged along while Eileen & Rita shopped for women's shoes. We also discovered that shopping for women's shoes was rather enjoyable.

I was a newly wed in 1961, my husband was still in the U of MO and I landed a position with Alexander & Wayland Law Firm. Fred was the Associate Partner. Fred was the younger of the three men and I was the younger secretary in the office. Fred always treated me like a lady, he would take me to Court and made me feel like a "full fledged legal secretary"! He and I and Eileen have kept in touch over the years and my son was in a wedding in California and we stayed at the Bay Club (can't remember the full name) where Eileen was connected. Fred and I have always been friends and I all ready miss knowing I could call on him if I needed legal advise. My husband ended going back to the U of MO for his Law Degree after he retired from the Business World.....Eileen, keep in touch. Thanks Michelle for contacting me. Wish I could be there Saturday, but the weather has become a problem, I certainly will be thinking of ALL OF YOU!

Memory of Fred Dannov
Jim and Barbara Benson

Fred and I and two other guys (we called ourselves the four Romeos—retired old men eating out) went to lunch every Thursday at a local coffee shop.

We would discuss and argue over politics, investments and sports, and whatever. Sometimes our “discussions” got a little loud as Fred delivered his opinions to us and all the other patrons of the restaurant. His opinions appealed to many and several times I remember people on their way out stopped to shake Fred’s hand. We even had one person show his appreciation by paying our check. We gratefully thanked Fred for our free lunch.

Our group has now broken up, but it was always a pleasure and an education knowing Fred.
