Even though I didn´t see a lot of Fred I will miss him at the family gatherings. My favorite memory of him was at Ryan´s game at Gillette Stadium. I was sitting next to him and he explained every play in detail. I´ve never seen him so animated and excited. He was thoroughly enjoying himself and so proud of Ryan. It made the game more exciting for me. I also remember the first time I met him. He was holding Tyler at his baptism and he looked so proud and somewhat uncomfortable to be holding such a small baby. He will be missed. It´s amazing how such a quiet and gentle soul can make an indelible mark in my heart.

We will miss Freddie's smile and his sweet dimples. He always had a joke to share and make you laugh. May the pain we all feel now be nothing compared to the joy we find within the memories.

Anne, I am so sorry to hear of Freddy's passing. Knew him for a long time starting from school all the way to work and a friend. It was a real pleasure knowing him all those years.
