I met Fred shortly after he married my cousin Terry Lynn Maxwell. He was so good to her and they both seemed so happy. He took care of her when she became ill and was by her side when she passed away. His son Rex was as good natured and easy going as Fred. I’ m glad that Fred and Terry shared the time they had together. I know they will be together in heaven. Heaven gained a beautiful soul.
