This wonderful man is uncle to my daughters. He passed away early Saturday morning. Of cancer complications. Next month Freddie would have been 80. So hard to believe. He was always fun to be around . He worked hard all the time. Stayed so active.
Here is his family, son Mike, wife Linda, and daughter Tracy. There was a showing on Monday evening and the funeral was on Tuesday.
I am in this (dark) photo of Fred's children, my daughters, Step daughter to John (Fred's brother) , and his sister Barbara's children. When I was young, all this young adults were babies and toddlers. One day I will have to tell the story of my marriage at 16. I was married to Freddie's little brother Eddie. He is the father of my four daughters. Fred's passing was very sad for us...he was the last of my daughters' family on their father's side. Their father, aunts and uncles are gone.
There's cousins, like Frieda and Phillip. Here at the church , after the Catholic service. Our Catholic church is torn down , so services are held in the school basement. We will miss Uncle Freddie.
The next morning , this is how the skies changed.
It rained and is still raining on and off. Hoping we do not get the very heavy rains. Some storms are headed this way.
Take care. Hope all of you have a good weekend, XO
