My condolences to the Fryer Family at this difficult time, it is all so difficult to say goodbye to a childhood friend. Although we lived far apart we always remained in contact. For over 30 years or so, we talked on the telephone at least one or twice a week. Three weeks ago in Maryland, in a ''Fryer" kind of way did I see you on your way back home to Waterbury. Seeing you bought tears, but joy to my heart, and it also bought back many of our childhood memories. I will always remember the long walks down E Main Street to the Boy's Club and hanging out in Lakewood Park. I cherished our friendship. Bobby, you will forever be in my heart, until we meet again, (Our man Fryer) luv ya, Bro.
