There are many things I could write, today.
But I'd like to propose a moment of silence in honor of the man who originally found Phil and offered the contract in Sweden. He died two days after Christmas, 2008. Phil just got word yesterday.
We are thinking of Fred's family and feeling like there was so much left unsaid and done.
We owe the joys of discovering Sweden to Fred.
