I would like to first of all offer my deepest sympathies to Ann, Noomis, Tara and the Olivas family. Knowing Fred has been a true privelege for me. Fred was truly one of a kind individual. Rarely do you find such a great person and friend but I sure did. Frederico will be missed by myself and all that knew him. RIP my friend. Leonard

Dear Ann,
So very sorry for your loss. It's with great regrets that I am unable to attend Ricardo's services. Not only is the weather making it difficult, but since we just moved to Elkhorn, NE, we are still trying to get settled here. This is a difficult time for you, and I know your family will be there for you. Many prayers for you and your family.

My Dearest Father in law,
I’m pretty good with words, however, I can’t seem to find the right ones for you. You have given me so much over the course of the last 13 years. They say everyone has 3 GREAT loves in a lifetime and you were most certainly one of my 3. I will cherish all of our times spent and memories made. You will FOREVER be my FAVORITE! Freddie, I was so blessed to have you in my life. Thank you for always supporting me, never underestimating me and loving me so fiercely and soundly. You truly were the wind beneath my wings. ♥️
