We are sorry for your loss. We have been Fred's neighbor on the Res for many years, and though we didn't see him a lot, he has been a very good neighbor, and we have enjoyed the times when we did get to visit and talk with him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

My sincerest condolences to Fred's family and loved ones. I generally pass by Fred's house on my daily morning walks, and if I saw him sitting outside in front of his house, we would quite often chat for awhile. Fred always seemed to have very interesting stories regarding the goings-on in Douglas. I will miss him!
