  1. I was so proud that my younger brother Jay had Fred for a friend. He meant everything to Jay and became his friend that helped him out so much. He taught Jay how to make salsa and many many other things but most of the friendship was what meant so much to Jay. We lost a good ‘un.

  2. Ferdie (my Fideo), I’m so glad we had the relationship we had! Not as uncle and niece, but a great friendship! The laughs we shared, our conversations about cooking, life and family! You were very special to me. I love you and I will miss you.
