    Such a beautiful tribute and it resonates with my memories of Fred. I remember is consistent request for a homemade apple pie I made as a young girl, and I would make a pie every time my dad and I visited his house in Bloomingdale. And, of course, who could forget lightbulb. Fred undeniably leaves behind a legacy of love for those near and dear to him, and his absence will be felt. My heartfelt condolences to all of you.
