Hello my name is Aimie Contarino. I am the grand daughter of Margaret Contarino, Frances' sister.

I just wanted to say how much I admired and appreciated Uncle Fred. He was such a great man. Funny and energetic. Uncle Fred and I were penpals for a year or two in 2004-2005. I'd reached out to him after my dad died as a way to connect with some part of our family. And even though he wasn't a blood relative, he was happy to humor me. :) He wrote to me about his daily routines, cooking and caring for Aunt Frances and taking walks and shoveling snow. He would tell me about his grand daughter who was working at Disney and how proud he was of her. In one of the letters I just reread he wrote "The flu is going around. I didn't get the flu shot though. Figured I should save that for the old people". :)

I will always remember Uncle Fred for his humor and good grace. He was a great guy and lived life in such a wonderful way. I feel lucky to have had the chance to know him.

I'm sure as the year anniversary of his passing is approaching your hearts are heavy with memories and love for your father and grandfather. Sending my thoughts to you all.

Colette, I'll always remember the fun times at the Italian Club and doing a polka with him. Hope he and your mom are dancing in heaven! Donna

Fred was my inspiration at St Francis parish. He will be missed. The angels are singing to him already.
