In the late 80's my husband, Pete started playing golf with Fred and his nephew Charles. Charles and Pete became very close friends, and often spoke of Uncle Fred. I had also met Fred and his family at social events, not knowing that he would be my step dad in 1997. After Fred lost his wife and my mom lost my dad, Charkes' wife Bertie and I introduced Fred and my Mom Hazel and it was love at first sight. We have been very blessed to have Fred in our family. I want to thank him with all my heart for making the last 12 years of my mothers life very happy and I know that he was happy as well. They were meant for each other. I love you and will miss you every day.
