    So sorry to read this Linda, Fred and I had some great talks during my football pool years, at my home and on the phone Sunday mornings. We always talked of Red Sox and our predictions, Patriots, and he kept me up on his activities, health, and of course how you were doing. Fred was a great person and friend and so devoted to you! Sending sympathy and love to you Linda and your family.
