Andy and I got the horrible news the other day that an old friend of ours passed away very suddenly a few months ago, in a most tragic, unfortunate manner. Out of respect for her and her family, I'm not gonna say much about it here, I just wanted to pause and remember Frederique - Fred, to us. She was sweet, lovely, and unfortunately just not right for this world of ours. We thought very fondly of her, and are deeply saddened by the news of her passing. Our hearts go out to Fred's parents and sister - we will never forget the lovely weekend they spent with us in DC, and cannot possibly fathom the void that this loss has caused them.
We'll miss you, Fred. Godspeed.
