Dear Judy, Julie and Valerie,
I wanted to thank you so much for the opportunity to help you with the 'Celebration' of Fred's life, and your totally unnecessary generosity. Although I did not know Fred personally, I feel as though I did having met you, his wonderful family. You ladies are very special people and I feel lucky to have met you. My deepest sympathy for your loss, and my sincere thank you for your appreciation, although not required.....I was more than happy to do whatever I could to make this sad time as easy as possible for your family. Sincerely, Maureen 688-1150

Judy & Family-Just heard today about Fred's passing we send our condolences, thoughts and prayers out to all of you. As a member of the Pictou Co. clan, one could not be in or around Pictou and not hear or be aware of "de Decker" and his roustabout buddies and their hi jinks adventures.(Bergie, Merle M. Gary L. Mellie M. etc).These were the "fonz' boys that we younger guys were trying to emulate and get on "the inside track" with .If they said "How's it going?"-or Hi to us when we came into "Eddie's" or "Bill's"-man, our day was made!!!!
Fortunately for all of us that association did more good than harm and by the Grace of God-or good fortune we all did pretty well!!!
I will always remember the twinkle in Fred's eyes when we would meet him and that smile! One never knew just what might occur next in the way of hellery,or fun. We will miss him .his kind heart and ever friendly manner.
Our best wishes to you and your family.
Stewart and Sheila Veniot & Family.
