    So many memories of my Uncle Fred. He was not only a uncle but second dad, grandpa, great grandpa and best friend. He was loved by everyone who knew him and never met a stranger. He was a strong man right till the end. He’s no longer suffering and at peace. I love you Johnnie and I’m here for you always.
