I returned home from a trip on Sunday afternoon, after the service for your dear Fred. How difficult the many years were for him, you, and your family as the cruel medical condition took its course. I extend sympathy to you, Alice, and all your family.
I think of you, too, Alice, and all the suffering you are going through.

Dear Taich Family- I am so sorry to hear of Fred's passing. I have fond memories of him from Longboat Key. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was also so kind and funny. I feel privileged to have known Fred. I remember how much he loved Alice- like a young man, he was always trying to please! Peace be with your family.
