"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Fred's song...

..after a very fit-full nights sleep, wrought with nightmares, anxiety and much nerve pain, I awoke this morning only to find that my world was just a little bit smaller.

My prosthetist, my confidant, my cheerleader in all things related to amputation, my friend, had perished after a short battle with his own demons.

I will miss you always Fred Cato, you are a shining jewel in the crown of my life and I will always remember your kindness, your laughter, and how you always--ALWAYS made my day better.  Love you.
