Such a nice and pleasant man. I anxiously waited for his arrival as our mailman, he delivered letters from my future husband who was serving the country in the Navy overseas. Later my mother worked the switchboard at Goddard Hospital and I saw him there. Great memories. May God Bless his family!

Gramp was the finest example of a honorable and compassionate man. He gave everything for his friends and family. His fun and witty charm will be missed. Rest in peace, Gramp, and know you will always be in our hearts.

Fred was my childhood Mister Fred Rogers. Always so caring, warm, and delivering mail with a smile and hello. Years later when in college, I would see Fred the Mailman at Goddard Hospital during my weekend Admissions work, extending the same warm kindness and smile to me and so many. Thank you Fred, for your incredible kindness, attention, and care.
