    We want to express our sincere condolences to Aunt Betty, Bonnie, Robin and Douglas. Uncle Fred was a devoted husband and loving father
    , with an intense, sincere appreciation of literature and music. Harold and Shirley always commented on how smart Uncle Fred was. It was especially nice to hear each speakers’ memories today. May his memory be a blessing.

    Dear Aunt Betty,
    I’m so sorry to hear about Uncle Fred’s passing.
    He lived a long life and he was loved by a lot of people. I have a lot fond memories going to your house for Passover and other Holidays. Plus visiting for other occasions, and your family visiting us.
    Again My condolence,
    Love
    Perry

    • Robin Alssid says:

      Thank you so much Perry. So nice catching up with you the other day!

  5. Kenneth Kobliner says:

    Uncle Fred was a wonderful person, a very nice uncle to Perry, Beth and me growing up and my dental patient for the last 35 years(although certainly not as meticulous and conscientious a patient as Aunt Betty). As such,I would see Betty and Fred 3 to 4 times a year and we would catch up on family news and goings on. While Aunt Betty focused in on her children, grandchildren, my parents and my family, Uncle Fred would talk about our families but also about politics, the economy, world events, sports,etc. I enjoyed our conversations and the opportunity to spend time with my aunt and uncle- who made a great team over the past 61+ years. At this sad time, a life well lived and all of the pleasant memories, will hopefully make these next few days, weeks, months and years a little more bearable. I wish to express my condolences to Aunt Betty, Bonnie, Robin, Douglas and their families and friends.

      Thank you Parminder. We really appreciate your thoughts and support during this difficult ultimate time.

      Best,

      Robin
