My HEART goes out to Donna and RoseMarie and the family. I am sicken and sad that I was at Heritage Sat attending a birthday party had I known I would have visited, Fred and Mary will always have a SPECIAL place in my HEART. I had the privilege and pleasure of being part of their lives while working at the Villa for Northfield Retirement Communities. I will always remember his smile and quick wit, even his gentle antics will always bring a chuckle to mind Rest in peace you will now walk among the clouds and stars with Mary and Jesus
