My Dear Cousin Freddie,
I know we didn't see each other a lot and I am a very bad telephone person, but you are someone who I love and will always be in my heart. I have memories of when you, Aunt Lil, Uncle Freddie, and the rest of the family would visit Aunt Mary in Brooklyn. Those visits were very special because our cousins from the "country" were coming to visit us from far away, Mount Kisco. I remember when Sue and I visited Aunt Lil at the nursing home and she told you that Jimmy and his girlfriend came to visit. You thought that she was speaking of my dad and that he had a girlfriend! I always cherished the times that you and cousin Joan would visit on Good Friday after the cemetery visits. You are truly a special person. I can still picture you the day my Father-in-law was buried at Gate of Heaven, and even though you never knew him, you were there to be sure that he would be buried after the funeral service. Acts of kindness like that is what made you special and that I will never forget. Thanks for visiting his grave every year and if Sue and I couldn't get there, we knew there was always flowers on his grave. I also appreciate all your visits to St. John's Cemetery visiting my mom, dad, grandparents, aunts and uncles. Cousin Freddie, even though you are not physically here, you are so very special to me and I will miss you, but until we meet again, you will always be alive in my heart.
With all the love of my heart,
My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the Lena family. I always enjoyed saying hello to Fred and checking on how he was doing. Such a sweet man. I’m so sad to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to Joan and her family during this very sad time. Love from Rebecca Bass
