Not sure what to say?

Jeannette, we were particularly surprised to get word of Fred's death, for I had always thought of him as one of the youngsters, and remember our early days in Cost Allocation where he was the jolly numbers whiz who taught us all to use our brains before the Friden calculators. We had rarely attended PERC meetings before going this month counted on seeing you two who we knew had been regulars.
God bless you as you move on into a new way of life.

Thoughts and prayers to the family. I have good memories of working with Fred at Prudential and will miss occasionally bumping into him at the South Mandarin Library.

This was a big loss to the Prudential retiree family. My condolences to the family.

Dear Jeannette and family,
We were so sorry to hear of Fred's passing. How wonderful that you were able to have him at home until his passing. May your faith and memories bring you all great consolation. I am praying for all of you. Love, Mary Moritz

Paul and I were saddened to hear of Fred's passing. Over these past years, we were blessed to grow closer to Fred and Jeannette as we shared Saturday evening mass with them at San Jose. There, his gentle and loving presence was known to all as he greeted members, ushered and had a kind word for us each week. I will miss him and my hug each week. Prayers to Jeannette and the family. God will surely grant them strength to get through these difficult times. Our love and prayers always.

We have lost one of our long time Pru Retirees! He made it a point to speak to everyone & share a story ever so often.
My sympathy to his family & friends as he will be missed.
RIP French Fry.

Dear Jeanette and sons, I will keep you all in my prayers...may our good God bless you with perfect Peace and Love....just like He did for Fred. God be with you all.

Mike and family our thoughts and prayers to you all at this very sad time. Mr. Kowkabany was a neighbor, fellow parishioner at San Jose Catholic and for many, many years at Prudential a co-worker of my mothers (Dee Fix). He was much admired and respected in the community. May he rest in peace, comfort and the glory that is Heaven.
