Uncle Fred, when I first knew you, you lived on 16th street, but I didn't know you very well because I was a very young child in those times and in the late years of your life you lived on Stonecroft, but you didn't live there long enough for me to build many memories within those walls. So to me, you will always have lived on Dorchester Road; that is where you fostered my fondest memories of our family. I see you there every time I drive by that house! The place where you & Aunt Alvira took a house & turned it into a home ~ not just for you, Sharon, Tommy and Larry, but for "all" your family, the hundreds of us!

You were always the synergy, the nucleus of our family, whether we were a Cassata, a Malucci, an Interdonato, a Shell, a Giambelluca, a Malone, a Heir, you made us one (and forgive me for not being able to list all the names of everyone you considered your family; the names are to endless), you brought us all together, you made friends feel like family and family was always the most important thing in the world to you. The food, the parties, the good times, the card games, the love, the devotion, the sharing, the cookies, the endless coffee pot, the laughs, the jokes, the stories, the hugs, the caring, the crying, the holidays, the sharing of yourselves for the good of us all; your doors and arms were always open and welcoming.

Uncle Fred, you opened your heart in ways that we should all emulate, you set the example and you showed us love in a way we should all learned from. If we could only remember to pay it forward and live by your example, we will give honor to the way you lived your life in a hope of experiencing the magic of your love again in our lives and in the lives of our children and those that go after us.

I am so grateful for the gift of you and the love you shared with me! I will miss you.

Uncle Fred was a such beautiful man inside and out….what a tragic loss. He was very lucky to have you as his daughter; I know he always felt your love from the hugs, kisses, sincere warmth, smiles, the care you always gave him, and the wonderful treats you made for him. I have so many beautiful memories of all the family gatherings he and you mom so graciously and lovingly hosted. I am honored to say he was my Uncle.

Dear Sharon, Amy & Family,
I am so very sorry for the loss of "Unmcle Freddie" He was an extrordinary man matched by no other. He was so tallented and creative, and his personality was always very loving and welcoming. I am very glad to have had him as a neighbor, but most of all as a friend for so many years. I'll always remember how much he loved and how devoted he was to Amy. He used to walk by my house with her in the wagon he made for her. One of the most beautiful memories my mind holds! I will always be grateful for all the good times and wish you all brighter days ahead.
With my heartfelt deepest sympathy, you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Dearest Amy,
I always said the final greatest joy in life has to be: being a Grandparent. As Grandma's "Buppa" (sp) and Grandpa's "Honey, Honey, Honey" you were and are still the greatest joy in their lives. Grandpa dearly loved his three children, but you are the frosting on the cake of his life.
You loved when Grandpa called you everyday then you called him daily, for years. You so lovingly understood his illness and the fact that he struggled for words and repeated himself (so politely). Your calls continued even when he was too weak to talk and when he couldn't answer. Toward the end you would say, "Hi Gramps, it's your Honey, Honey, Honey I love you" then we would talk on speaker...he would get so relaxed and get rid of that silly frown. Then you would finish off to him with "Bye Gramps, I love you, I'll talk to you tomorrow."
Grandpa will forever hold in his heart (as I will) your incredible conversation just four days before he went to Heaven. You started out with "Hi Gramps, it's your Honey, Honey, Honey." Then you said "Grandma is waiting for you, and Uncle Hank and Aunt Katie & Uncle Sam...you mentioned everyone from Grandpa's and Grandma's side of our family. You so fluently went into all the things you have done together: from picking flowers, walks in the backpack, sleeping with Grandpa, Olympic Metals, swimming, etc. Nothing was missed, your heart spoke loudly to Grandpa. When you said "I know you'll be watching me from Heaven, like Grandma does", my only introjection: "and he will always be proud of everything you do...like Grandma is". You spoke and sent love to Grandpa for over 35 minutes. Your bond with Grandpa is undeniable.
Please be happy to know the last real "conversation" Grandpa heard was from you, just one hour before his last breath. I spoke and comforted him but it was not a conversation. You are a blessing to all who know you!
I wish you happiness and love as you fondly hold on to the years spent with "PAPADADA"-"GRANDPA"-" GRAMPS".
You were so prepared for when Grandpa couldn't look or tell you how much he loved you, yet you knew his heart would tell him...and it did! Now he has a special smile looking down on you, his: "one and only Grandchild" and his "Pretty Baby" (no matter how old you are).
Amy, My Angel, I send you love and prayers, more than the usual.
With TONS of LOVE XOXOXO
