"Fred, I met you when you moved into 229 Greenbriar, I was your next door neighbor @ 231 Greenbriar. We instantly bonded because we were both Long Islanders. We both donated our time on the board of directors with Elliot Krause and another NYPD detective. 4 New Yorkers got stuff DONE there. I still drive thru Greenbriar and remember the address signs you donated and put up JUST because you wanted to make our home a better place. I used to call you after my home in Greenbriar was foreclosed on just to shoot the shit. When I started to get only your voicemail and I knew something was wrong. My life has been turned upside down, but I always wondered if everything was OK. I finally got on the computer and found out you had passed. Goodbye old friend. By the shear number of tributes to you I can see you were exactly who I thought you were, a great person who was always concerned about others before yourself!!! Long Island New York Forever!! Enjoy your bike in Heaven, cause I KNOW that is where you are....Rich"

"The angels looked down from heaven one night
They searched for miles afar,
And deep within the distance
They could see a shining star.
They knew that very instant
That the star was theirs to gain,
So they took you up to heaven
Forever to remain.
Look down on us from heaven
Keep us free from hurt and pain,
You'll always be within my heart
Until we meet again"
