Not sure what to say?

I just heard about Fred's passing from former co-worker Bob Stone. I worked for Fred from 1986-1989 at Air Con when I first got into the the profession. He was one of my first mentors in the business. Fred's knowledge was great, but his compassion for people is what I remember the most. I last saw him around 5 years ago...I stopped in at the bank to say hello, and he remembered me! We sat and chatted for awhile about life, business and family.

My deepest condolences to the family,...

I was deeply saddened when I stopped in to the bank last week and learned of Mr.Abdula's passing. I am just so so very sorry for your loss! He was such a wonderful person. You see, my mom, Marcy DeMasters was his personal secretary and V.P.for quite a few years at the Bank of Waukegan. I always remember her telling me that she would not retire until Fred did. Unfortunately, she took sick and was forced in to retirement. I know that was a very difficult time for her. She respected and...

Our deepest condolences to Ann, Linda, Lisa, Pat & Mike. Your Father was truly a unique and sincere man, and undoubtly the best friend MY Father ever had. Our lives were, and are, enriched by Fred. We all are blessed by his presence.

To the Abdula Family, I was very sad to hear about Fred's passing. He will be missed. I had the benefit of working for him back in 1987-1992 and I enjoyed my involvement with the firm. Fred was always a gentleman and very generous. My thoughts and prayers go to all of you.

I was so sorry to learn about Fred's death. He had a larger than life presence and contributed so much to the community. My sympathies are with all of you.

My condolences and prayers are with you. Last Saturday evening, I was looking at a wedding photo of Dad and Mom (Fred and Arlene Nelson). Fred and Ann were in the photo, too. It brought back fond memories of my early childhood days. I always thought Fred was so handsome and Ann so beautiful. Fun times our families had together. Love, Julie (Nelson) Bilow

Sending sympathy from our family to yours.May the God of all comfort be with you in the days ahead.He will draw close to you if you draw close to him(James 4:8).
