Not sure what to say?

My thoughts and prayers to the McLeod family. Mr. McLoed made watching the Cavs. so entertaining. I watched him for so many season, it's going to be hard watching without him there.
It's almost like you knew him personally, just a radiant spirt emanated from him.

God Bless

Dearest Beth and Family,

I feel heartbroken.
I will always remember Fred's sincere smile, strong voice, and enthusiasm reflecting his caring, upbeat nature. He was a lovely, talented person, and a professional co-worker - both on air and off.
At this difficult time of great sadness may you rely on the promises of Christ.
I send you all my love,

We are so very sorry for your loss. I always loved listening to Fred and AC call Cavs games. He was the best in the business, and his energy and quick wit made it an adventure every game. It will just not be the same without him. Your family is in our prayers as you grieve.

To McLeod Families:
I was in shock after hearing of Fred's passing.
I am a Cavs fan and listened to him an AC do the games. He will be missed. Deepest sympathy to all of you. May the God of all comfort, comfort and strengthen you now and in the days to come. God bless and keep you.
