You will be missed! Rest In Peace !  



Fremont and I became fast friends back in 1970 when he contacted me about a tropical fish article I had written. That was the beginning of an awesome and caring friendship with him and Helga. This was before the days of cell phones and the internet but we kept in close touch by letter and phone sharing stories about our gardens and aquarium fish. Although we only met 4 times, that didn't hamper our friendship. His garden of dwarf conifers was something to behold! And Helga was so warm and supportive. I loved them both deeply and feel so fortunate to have had them both in my life. In recent years the friendship expanded to include their daughter Karina, and we are in close touch. Rest in peace Fremont and Helga. I miss them both.
