  1. Dear Paul, Chrissy, and family. Our condolences on the loss of Fred. Our thoughts are with you during this time and hope you can enjoy many memories.

  2. Many, many years ago, I introduced Fred and Sue. Sue and I were on an escape from boredom, going to one of my favorite watering holes, a place with personality but miniscule clientele, where we felt safe. Sitting at the bar were Fred and Elton, who was one of my favorite people at the time. What ensued was my introducing Sue and Fred, and I never got another word from either of them: they were entranced, Fred making lots of witticisms, and Sue laughing and laughing. And they carried this on till the end.

  3. Paul, Christine, Marissa and Trevor, Our hearts are so sad to learn about the passing of your beloved Father and Grandfather. The Mogauro family is with you in love and spirit. May the happy memories you have of him bring you some comfort during this sad time. All out best,
    Dana, Jeanne, Kenny, Megan & Ryan

  4. Dear Sue and family,
    I’m sorry I never had the opportunity to meet Fred. I know how much you loved and enjoyed spending time with your husband from your stories when we worked together. Please know that I am thinking of you during this difficult time.
