Fred, it's still hard to believe that you are gone. You were my big brother in childhood and even in my adult life. You were always there for me. Ready to protect me from anything and everything. I will always cherish the memories I have of us growing up in Staten Island, the boats, fishing, crabbing in the summer and ice skating and sleighing in the winter. Like most brothers we had our moments. But when I needed you, you were always there for me. You were such a kind and gentle soul, always willing to give and never expecting anything in return. I will miss you for now, but I know I will see you again someday. I love you, Ronnie
