Hey Fred,

When my family moved to Dellwood Park when I was 8 years old, it was you who I hung out with, rode bikes with, build secret forts with. It was you who sold me my very first Playboy centerfold. (Thanks for that - you charged me more then the cost of the entire mag)...good business sense aside, today I visited GZ and found the exact place I spent most of my time searching as a rescue worker. I wish I found you old friend - you may be gone, but don't think for a second that I don't have the Styx and J.Geils Band 33s you got me for my birthday and a forever lasting childhood memories. (got rid of the centerfold)

Your friendship made my childhood amazing - and I know how lucky I was to live down the street from a friend that made life fun, even waiting for the bus and having you beam a tennis ball at my ass (vice-versa) as we waited for the bus at the Davidoff's house.

At Woodglen Elementary school, when you ran for class President, I remember making a pin that said "Use your head: Vote for Fred". It's an election year - you've got my vote buddy - I was so happy we had such a great time at our HS reunion, but had no idea it would be our last. May you rest in peace.

Also, wishing all of the Gabler's and their extended family my warmest wishes on this difficult day. Leslie, Howard and Jolie, you have an amazing Son/Brother!

On such a sad day, nice to know that Fred must be smiling down on Mindy & family and so proud of all the good they have done in his name. xoxo Laurie

Looked out on my terrace tonight and saw the tower light shining. Then I said a little prayer for Freddy.

Just wanted to let the Gablers (Aunt Leslie & Uncle Howard) know that you are in my thoughts always, but especially today!

Miss ya Freddy. All the time. Love to all Gablers. Also, I think its hysterical that the Baco gym is named after the Bug. Couldnât be more fitting. The mental dress down received from Freddy and Nagel growing up was so influential - everything from how slow I ran, to my posture. Pretty important stuff for a 14 year old. Miss you buddy. The stuff you came up with was so good.

I will never forget my first day in high school as a freshmen, fred was a senior......I was so scared. Fred introduce me to the entire basketball team and football team and made me feel soooo comfortable. He was one of the sweetest and loveliest men i have ever had the privilege to know! xoxoxoxo

Thinking of you not just today but everyday. I can only imagine what you would have achieved over the last 11 years. Your parents send me the beautifully crafted book honoring your life. My thoughts and prayers to Mindy, Alexis and your entire family.

Yesterday Grobie and I chaperoned our 6th graders to the Memorial. Grobie wore the Bazaar shirt from this past summer in Fred's memory. Surreal experience. Grobie found Fred's name cut into the parapet at N26- I think. I did a rubbing of his name in bright crayons in my sketchbook and then added "Baco Pride". I thought of Mindy and Alexis. Grobie told me how awesome Alexis is...obviously she's awesome.

Many emotions for us all over the last few days. 10 years is an eternity, yet the feelings so easily bring us right back to that terrible time when we lost Freddy.
My only solace of his not being with us all everyday is seeing the smile and spirit of his soul live on in the beauty that is Alexis.
He would be so proud of what she and Mindy have built over the last decade and how strong and resolute Howard and Leslie in these many years since.
I miss him so dearly and am thankful for the love that we shared.
