Danny, David and Family, Please accept our sincere condolences on the loss of your parents and brother. Your father worked with us at Package Machinery and was very instrumental in getting us together. That was 43 years ago and we have been married for 41. May the fond memories you have of times together help sustain you during this difficult time. God bless.

He was my first soccer coach when I was growing up in Ludlow. Will always remember him. So sad to hear the news.

I remember Freddy as I called him when I was younger. Every time I saw him he put a smile on my face, with his upbeat and fun-loving attitude. I believe is mother was my grandmother's sister. I'm so sorry to hear about such a tragic accident.
