"Remembering and still missing my "little brother Fred."  I can still see the sparkle in his eyes and the wonderful smile he had.  I still marvel at his many stories, esp. the drag racing with Dr. Fredberg's son. Uncle Dutchie told dad that he thought he saw his car and Fred quickly retorted that there were many white Ford's like dad's. Fred's mountain climbing in Japan was funny to hear but not so funny for Fred when it happened.  Then there was his skiing which was a hair raising story.  What a life you had Fred.  I forgave you when I looked out our window on 21st Ave. and saw my monopoly money "blowing in the wind."  I couldn't have asked for a better brother than you.  I will love you always Fred, your sister, Shirley"

"It's been a hard year coping with the loss of our only brother.   I do believe in signs and the first thing this morning on the lst. anniversary of Fred's passing, I saw his beautiful smile.  His business calling card was by my lamp and there was Fred with his infectious smile.  Our telephone conversations on life and politics are missed.  No one could tell jokes better than Fred.  My "little" brother would amaze me with his stories of his adventures growing up.  A kind sweet person that was loved by all.  Rest in peace dear brother and I will treasure you always.  Your sister, Shirley"

"I am so saddened that we never got that lunch, Freddie.  I had tried to call a couple of times only to get your voice mail.  You will be missed terribly. You were such a wonderful man and friend.  Hopefully you and my mom are causing trouble in the "next realm" of existence...
You were patient and kind and will never be forgotten...."

"Missing you, Brother. No more goofy phone calls in Swedish accents. I think about you all the time, but more so on your birthday the 4th. We both knew that our last time together wasn't a good bye, but until we meet again. What a blessing it was to have you for a little brother."
