A cousin is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost. Always remembered, forever loved. Knowing cousin Fred, he's joking with the Angels.
May his soul rest in peace & may God bless his family with strength and courage to cope in this unfortunate time.

So sorry for your loss, what a nice guy he was, what sticks in my mind the most was the time Tim and I and others were driven to some sort of baseball game in South Fork and as we were leaving, he said he had to put the Chevy Blazer " blue I think " in Racing gear, I told him that it was in Reverse, he showed us that it was really Racing gear. Never forgot that. The Warshel family has my deepest condolences.
