I will miss you Fred. We grew up together, playing in the fields and woods of Virginia. Our strong family roots have tied us together through our lives. I miss the days when we were young and we all danced into the night at your house. When our kids were young and played in the yard as it grew dark outside. I will miss visiting your home and talking about old times, family and friends back home. I know you are at peace with dear Nora Lee. That you are watching over us and that gives me comfort. I miss you dear friend.
