Andrew and Karen: Freda(along with her mom) loved my Son and welcomed him into your family especially during a very bleak time in my life. Rest assured that Eric has never forgotten it, although life gets in the way.
As for me personally, I am forever indebted to her friendship because at the lowest point of my life, she suggested a specific career path for me. At the lowest point in my life, she offered me encouragement and upon pursuing my new career, have lived a great life directly because of her.
By the way, I DID get to tell her just that. It was via phone a few months ago. I sob now that I didn’t get to tell her in person but, class act that she is, told me- “THANKS FOR CALLING.” Be strong for one another and know she was loved by many.
Respectfully, Al Monte.
