Mary, Mary Anne & Fred,
Your husband, father has taken care of my family since I was born, 61 years ago. He was my father's best friend, which was a challenge in itself, and always there for us. I just wish I had been able to spend more time with him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this sad time.
Love, Carol Ann Bass

Jane and I kept our investments with Fred for years, and became friends not only with Fred, but with Freddy and the staff. Fred was referred to us by a good friend who emphasized Fred's integrity. We give thanks for having known him.

On Thursday, we lost Fred' s physical presence only. His spirit continues to cheer me with humor, comfort me with loyal friendship, and always to guide me with his wise council.

Mrs. Deaton I want to extend my deepest condolence to you and your family for your loss. My prayers are with you during this season in your lives. You probably don't remember me, but I use to work for you when I was attending college during 1962-64. I use to keep Mary Ann and Freddie. on weekends. May the Lord give to you at this time and always His Peace in your soul and His Presence in your heart.

Uncle Fred, I know you're with my sister, dad, mom, stepdad, brother-in-law keeping everyone laughing. Sometimes it's the little things we do in life that make the biggest impact on people. I've told you this story many times and you always said it was no big deal, but it was!! When I was in 5th grade and a Camp Fire girl, my Dad couldn't attend the Father/Daughter dinner/dance event and you stepped up to the plate and took me! You have no idea how that made a 10 year old little girl feel sooo good and even now at the ripe old age of 55 that still brings tears of joy to my eyes! Love you and we'll see ya on the other side one day! Keep eveyone laughing! xo
