Dear Freddy and Family: Thank you for sharing and presenting a fitting, deserved tribute to the loved and respected (and handsome)
Fred McGregor Sr. who will never be forgotten.
I enjoyed each of the family photos that reminded us of what a wonderful life Fred and Frances enjoyed and how important family was to them and how proud they were of Freddy and Evelyn and family. And, how happy they were and we were too when you shared your travels with us all.
And, I shall never forget the treasured visits that Darrell and I enjoyed before and after Frances and Fred moved to Frisco (many made possible by his ever devoted Freddy and Evelyn, who made things happen).
And, now Fred will join his dear Frances once again and on Mothers Day.
And so I offer our prayers, love and sympathy to you all. Rosemary

Fred T, a member of "the greatest generation!" We will always cherish the memories you shared with us about your "boxing days," while serving in the Army! Also, many years ago I was sharing with you how one of my girls had cried while away at camp - you shared: "heck, when I went off to the Army, I cried too!!" R.I.P.
