Dear Pat, Rick and Stacy,

We are so very sorry for the loss of Fred. He will always be remembered as the strong, friendly neighbor who moved in across the street and in a very short time frame, changed our lives for the better. We have such wonderful memories of him and your family. Watching the video tribute helped connect us to him again. His gentle smile, kind demeanor and tremendous charisma. We take comfort knowing he was surrounded by you as he passed away. His legacy truly lives on in the remarkable lives of his family, and the thousands of people fortunate to have him as their coach. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Deepest Regards.

Life is eternal, and love is immortal, and death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
