I received this sad announcement about C/D alum, Fred Rubin:
We may, or may not, have met before. I am Fred Rubin's friend, Stephen.
I'm writing with a request.
If you're on this list it's only because I am of the understanding that you are or were either a friend or a friendly-colleague of Fred's. I'm certain that there are many of both categories not on this list, so please pass-along this request to anyone you know who may be interested --- or tell me and I'll see that they get word.
Fred is in hospice and not expected to live much longer following his lion-hearted fight for more Time with his sons.
Fred's boys, Sam, 14, and Abe, 12, who Fred cherishs, are getting the short-end when it comes to Time with Dad. I'm hoping to flesh-out more of Fred's past for them by gathering Words and Images of Fred from any source.
DO YOU HAVE PHOTOGRAPHS OF FRED?
Or film, that you would be willing to duplicate and forward, or loan to me to scan and return?
DO YOU HAVE WORDS ABOUT FRED?
A phrase characterizing him? An anecdote? An Appreciation? If you do contribute something here, please indicate how you first came to know Fred.
Please forward materials to me with a note about whether you want the materials returned.
There is no deadline.
If photos and remembrances of Fred appear sporadically in my life from the procrastinators among you, well, I can think of worse things. My intention, however, is to assemble and organize contributions and get them soon to Fred's boys.
