I was so sorry to read about Fred. You and your family will be in my thoughts as you move forward. I know you have lots of support, but it's always hard to say goodbye no matter the situation. Fred will be missed by all who knew him.

I am sorry for your loss, I know there are no words that will take away the pain, but there is the hope that you can see your loved one again.(John11:25,26)

For the entire 25 years of Sally's and my St. James tenure, Fred called our attention to, contributed to and gave himself wholeheartedly to every important social ministry/action venture that came our way; ---truly a saint among saints! Together we now recall, with Donna, Maren, Elise and extended family, the promises of Jesus Christ Our Risen Savior.
