Abstract: Paying respect to our fallen comrade and dear old friend has been an annual event. For those of us who had the privilege of meeting and knowing him, this will be the occasion when we can share the most joyful moments spent with him with the next generation of behavior analysts. This is not an occasion to discuss his contribution to behavior analysis (theory and practice, etc), but a true moment to appreciate his lifestyle, his love of fellow comrades, his sense of humor, etc. In 20 years or so, some of us will be joining him. The interesting encounters with Fred will be lost forever. This year, we will produce and distribute a free CD on Fred. His colleagues and fan club contributed different chapters with pictures. This is just a starter CD and we will always add more stories to the CD. Theories are important, and so are data analyses, but what would we be like if we did not have Skinner and Keller with us? This is a unique session as sessions before, and will last years.
