Joanne and Fred sent my son Randy, yes named for their son who was a good friend to Gary, money every year for his birthday. They got to meet our Randy several years ago. Always encouraging him and letting him know they loved him. Best of people she and Fred were. Forever grateful for their love of our Randy and our family.
