Mr. Fred, you will be missed. I’ll miss your smiling face as you stopped by from time to time to say hello. You’re now in a better place, a place that can’t be found on Earth. Mrs. Lou you have my condolences and prayers. May God give you and the Family peace during this hour of grief. God Bless you with Love. Michael Turner, your loving neighbor and dear friend.
