“I will always remember Fred and the great times we had playing softball. He took me under his wings as a youngster and introduced me to some great guys who were a lot of fun. What a great person.”

“If you can hear me Fred, I always thought well of you as a heck of a nice guy...and while some people think of the word 'nice' I've always thought such compliment as very meaningful. With more 'nice' people the world would be a better place. Best Wishes to you and yours. Welcome to Heaven! Jerry Parker”
