Please accept our deepest sympathy and understanding regarding the loss of Uncle Fred. A true American Hero who we all have had the greatest respect for. Without a doubt, he was the greatest example of a genuinely kind and giving person. We have always had the greatest respect for Uncle Fred and even patterned our path in life to be similar to his. Especially when it came to being an American, serving our military, and continuing to make contributions in life for those around us. These are the qualities we will always remember about Uncle Fred. We are thankful for his influence and saddened by the loss. He will be sorely missed. Hopefully we can all take comfort in knowing he is watching over us now and together with those family members already in Gods hands. For Aunt Doris an family, we hope you can feel some comfort in knowing that Uncle Fred is now simply waiting for us to join him someday and we will meet again. The Frole Family.
