My prayers go out to the family, and I know that Fred will be truly missed. I met Fred at Lockheed Aircraft Service when I was assigned to Det 4, and then OL/Det 2. in Fort Worth TX. Fred was a pleasure to know, and will be greatly missed.The Bible says absent from the body present with the Lord, so we will meet once again in heaven. I will keep the family in my prayers.

It's the little things, the small, everyday occurrences that you'll remember. The laughs, the stories, the smiles. And even though it seems like you can never recover from your loss, it is these very memories that will help push the pain away and bring back the smiles.
Thinking of you in your time of sorrow. Larry and Sharon Clapper
