How to create a post here

Hello friends, family, and loved ones of all ages —
We have been overwhelmed by the many stories about and tributes to my dad, Fred, that have come our way in cards, Facebook posts, and phone calls in the weeks since we lost him.  Speaking just for myself, these looks at the many lives he touched, insights into the days he spent with his union brothers and sisters, and reminders of all the wonderful things that made him who he was–from his eclectic taste in music to his love of children, from his tolerance for extremely spicy food to his unequivocal, unapologetic drive for justice–have been a light in the darkness.
We put together this site to have a place to share those stories and that light.  If you would like to create a post on this site, details for how to do so are below.

How to create a new post:

  • Open a new email, and address it to
  • The subject line of your email will become the title of the blog post.
  • The body of your email will become the body of the blog post.  This includes formatting like bold and italics, and also links, if you want to link to anything.  Please include your name in the body of the email, however you like (“by Naomi Solomon,” “Love, Naomi” etc) — because this email service is set up in Brad’s name, all posts by default say they are created by Brad (my husband/Fred’s son-in-law).
  • If you would like to include photos, you can embed them in the body of your email, or attach your photos to the email and they will show up at the bottom of the post.
  • Send the email!  It may take a minute or two, but it should automatically appear if you refresh

While we love and appreciate hearing from you, the family will be reading all posts and may determine that some notes will not be posted publicly.

With love & sadness,
