Sue, my sympathies. We called Kyle to tell him of Fred's passing.... Many fond memories. I still have the x stitch sampler hanging in my home that you made jimmie and kyle at their baptisms, and Kyle's Christmas ornamnet I hang yearly. He was a gentle giant in the world of love, understanding, and Christianity ... Love to all. Cathy, Jimmie, kyle and paige

Sue & Family,
I am so sorry to hear of Fred's death, but rejoicing that he is with our
savior and your son and brother, John. I can imagine the reunion that was held for them. God Bless such a wonderful family. Claudia

Sorry to hear of Fred's passing. Was friend of his brother Larry. Knew family from high school years and later when all the children went to Providence. Prayers to all the family.
