  2. Dear Fred, Beverly, and Family So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing and very upset that we did not know before the services were held. I’m visiting Mom in Connecticut and will be here until Dec 26. I always included your Mom when I sent out Christmas letters and she was always willing to squeal on you Fred when I would lose your address or phone number. Mom sends her condolences also. We share in your sorrow. If you have time while you are in Connecticut we would love to see you. Sandra Hart Makuaole and Florence Hart (203)248-7182

  3. Dear Fred, I was sorry to hear of your mother’s passing away. She had a good and long life. Warm wishes, Jane Heil Usyk

  4. Dear Freddy and Beverly, I have fond memories of your mother. When Kenny DeMaio and Eddie Johnson and the rest of us were in Cub Scouts Mr. Alling was the Den Father on one occasion and we held our meetings in the wooded lot next to the house on Lilac Street and Mrs. Alling made us cookies and all sorts of goodies. And some years ago when I was back in Hamden visiting my mom I dropped by and visited with your mom and we reminisced about those times when we were growing up. Wondeful memories to look back upon. I shall miss her.

  5. Dear Sue, So sorry to hear about your grandmother. She was always a great lady and neighbor. Hope you and the family are doing okay. Call me if you get a chance.

  6. Dearest Freddie, We are so sorry to hear that your mother had passed away. She had a good life. Hopefully happy memories will be consoling as your mom will be missed. Our door is always open to welcome you!!! Again our condolences to you and the family. Love, Paul and Beverly
