Freddie's passing came as a shock to me. Since leaving Florida, I always took comfort in the fact that, "somewhere out there," Freddie was--as Barry Wood put it--not letting things run TOO smoothly :) When I think about the hours and hours I spent talking with him about everything from work-life to marriage to religion . . . conversations with Freddie were quite the adventure, and I consider every one of them time well spent. It's sad to have lost your spirit and energy, and you will be missed.
