March 22nd was Fred's birthday. I wanted to create a special remembrance for his family who miss him terribly. I began compiling photos and wanted to also include a photo from his 90th Surprise Birthday Bash. As a keepsake for Fred of the day's events, I had created a hardbound book for him. He was absolutely thrilled with it and couldn't believe that I had pulled off the surprise party for him. The look on his face was priceless! Anyway, I took the book off the shelf and carefully unwrapped the cellophane that was around it for protection. When I opened the book, a little note that he had written to me fell out of it. Needless to say, I was totally surprised. It touched me deeply. I have included it at the end of the movie. In the note, Fred wrote a line from lyrics of the song, "I'll Be Seeing You" so I found a lovely piano rendition of the song and used it as the music bed to the movie. Perhaps, somewhere on The Other Side, Fred is giving his seal of approval. I hope you enjoy it.
