“Love is that condition in the human spirit so profound that it allows me to survive, and better than that, to thrive with passion, compassion, and style.” - Maya Angelou

Fred’s Love Story
“The year was 1965 and I was working overseas for Pan American World Airways. I was promoted to Regional Training Supervisor and sent to New York headquarters for a one-month training. When in the course I became interested in a very beautiful woman who was also a student. Her promotion was going to keep her in New York. For a whole month I tried to approach the lady with an invitation for a dinner in Manhattan. She would not accept until her colleagues convinced her there would be no harm accepting the invitation. What I did not know at the time was that she had become a widow only two months before. So I returned to my overseas location and we corresponded for one full year. Finally, she accepted me and I came over to New York where I was employed in the same airline and we were married. Our perfect marriage lasted just under 40 years and she passed away nine years ago.”
