    Guido R. Schiavi writes,
    I first met Fred about 2 years ago at 6 AM. I had been renting a home in Woodbrook right next door to Fred when I fell in my driveway and could not get up. Fortunately for me, Fred saw me through his kitchen window and came to my aid. He called my daughter, who happened to be my other next door neighbor, and she and her husband helped me up. Had Fred not seen me and come to my assistance, I don’t know what would have become of me. I am forever grateful. Fred was a good man.
