I'm so sorry to hear that Fred has passed away. He was a regular and popular dancer at Salsa. He always had a smile and was patient with newcomers to the dance. He never said anything if his follower stepped on his toe or spun the wrong way! He will be missed by his salsa friends. My condolences to his family at this sad time.

May I ask if his funeral is closed to family members or open others?

who is the one person who can always make me smile?
Even when I'm mad at him?
Even when he makes fun of me or laughs at me.
He is one of the people who has always been there for me, one who has always loved, cared, and provided for me.
He is one of the two most important people in the world to me. Someone I LOVE with all my heart.
He is my friend,my hero, but most importantly he is my..........
DAD .............. I'll miss u xxxx

  • Simon, beautifully put, and describes your Dad to a tee, I was proud to have him as my friend for so many years, we never had a cross word, and were always there for each other as friends are, when we needed help, support, laughter, company, dancing. He will always have a place in my heart. Sue x
