This dear compassionate man visited my husband daily and they exchanged the same memories and stories of their childhood and great golf moments over and over —never tiring of sharing the same stories day after day! He was always patient and kind loving and devoted to Nancy.
He was Fred’s best buddy and will be so missed!
