I am so very sorry for your loss of your dad, Blair and Annie. Like so many, I really liked Fred I have very many fond memories with Fred, limping around together in the outfield during our softball days, pogoing at the Equestrian Party, and eating boiled crabs on his porch while plotting our draft moves for our fantasy league teams. I will pray for your comfort and peace.
