It was just a year ago that I saw you for the first time in forever. Even though you never officially became my brother-in-law you certainly were like one to me. From all the way back when I was in high school until now, taking my little Tiki to dinner and don't forget the International Scout, anything else is just a car. Here's to you Fred, my sympathies to your family.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Fred's family. He will be missed greatly. He was truly a great friend. I'm sure by now he will have God convinced he should be driving a KW. We loved him dearly.
