Dear Fred,


Dear Fred,Lux Standart

I ran across this passage recently and I felt that it could easily apply to you and your life:Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

“This is the true joy of life, the being used up for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish, little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community, and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the
harder I work the more I live. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for a moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”
George Bernard Shaw

Keep up the good effort, Fred. I think of you –

Fletcher Manley

    Dearest Fred,

    You continue to be an inspiration to me, I love every adventure you share with me. I am always in awe at the generosity you possess and give to so many. I am so grateful for your friendship and being a part of your household.

    Thank you for reaching out 20 some years ago.

    Love always,


  2. Good morning, Fred~
    Thank you for crossing my narrow path in Reno, Nevada at that fun Ski Show! I didn’t realize it then but now, almost four years later, as I watched your photo gallery slide show this morning, I see “you” and your beautiful smile bringing gifts of love, life, goodness and happiness to everyone you meet. Your heart is filled with kindness and I am honored to have met you. Thank you for inspiring me to be a better person, every moment of every day. Your message of truly “living life” and not just to “exist” has motivated me to make necessary changes in my life that will allow me that reality. Thank you for your special friendship. I am looking forward to spending time with you in April 2012 for your birthday and to supporting you at you ALS fundraising banquet in Portland. Until then, best wishes for a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season. With Love and Gratitude, Carol Nicholson
