Condolences to all the Petrozzi girls . As one of the 3 Burns boys on the other side of the fence, Fred was always there to coach us through the fence and father us when our Dad was absent. I learned how to hold and swing a baseball bat from your Dad and we quickly learned that he didn’t want us getting foul balls from your yard (neither did Rufus). Fred knew when we needed to be scolded or taught a life lesson and he would let us know. Strict but kind he was quick to correct us and it was important to him that he took the extra time to explain why and impart a life lesson. Although my Mom had her say, I am sure that some of the respectful behaviors I have towards women came from multiple lessons he taught us about how to interact around his daughters. I still tell stories about being scolded by him for peeing on the side of our house. He taught respect in his words and his deeds on how he treated people. The kindness he showed my mother all the way up to her passing was greatly appreciated. Kenny loved spending time with your Dad and the Civil Air Patrol. Carmella was quiet but always acknowledged us with her kind smile. He adored her and everyone knew it. I am not shocked at all that after all those years together they stayed together even in their passing.
