I truly felt blessed knowing Fred. We have had some wonderful conversations throughout the years. I am heart broken that he has passed. My comfort is knowing that Fred had no doubt about where he was going after death. I admired his strong faith. Fly high my dear friend, your memory will forever be cherished.
