"Hello Family and Friends!
My name is Jasmine Anderson-Sebaggala, I am Fred Anderson's granddaughter. I am writing on behalf of my family. We appreciate the support and prayers for my grandfather, Fred Anderson. My Grandfather received visits and phone calls from more than 200 people. People traveled from various cities to visit him. Thanks for sharing great vibes, stories, food and love.

My grandfather died peacefully on Thursday June 24, 2010 at 3:10 a.m. He was in hospice at The Ark in Park Ridge, IL. We will miss my grandfather's presence, and cherish our memories of him. He was a humble man that helped and inspired others and loved his family and friends. The velvety smooth sounds blown from his horn remind me of his dedication, strength and courage. We will always honor his legacy, work ethic and determination. Funeral arrangements are pending.

In lieu of flowers, our family asks that donations be endorsed to AIRMW with a memo that it is for the Velvet Lounge Fund and sent to Asian Improv aRts Midwest, c/o JASC 4427 N. Clark St. Chicago, IL 60640. All proceeds will go to support keeping the Velvet Lounge open and thriving into the future.

Condolence cards and greetings can be sent to:

Jasmine Anderson-Sebaggala
