I just spoke with you a couple of days ago. You said you weren't feeling well. We joked that I guess I wouldn't know if you went back in the hospital again.
Didn't think I'd find you here..
Once or twice a year we'd talk. More in the past couple since your health got so bad. God has you now, and no more pain for you. I can picture you running around with your legs back in action.
I'm gonna miss you!
Glad we had the talk & time to forgive each other for our past and remained friends till the very end
Hasn't quite sunk in yet, as i'm sure others feel the same.
So sorry Freda & Fred & Family.
Frank was waiting on him with open arms I am very sure.
