Some of my most precious memories are fishing on Fairfield Pond with my brothers Fred, Frank and Joe. It was always a competition of who could catch the biggest bass and where the best fishing spots were. When Fred injured his shoulder and couldn't row I remember rowing him from one end of the Pond to the other in search of the biggest bass! Our last fishing trip together he was helped down the hill and into the boat by his namesake Fred Perron but was determined to get on the water! Even when I wasn't sure he knew me he would always ask if I owned that truck outside and could we go for a ride! So many wonderful memories of such a kind and thoughtful big brother! I'll miss you with all my heart.
