  1. What a wonderful likeness if Uncle Fred. I have seen that same smile on mom. How she loved her brother. Loss of the presence of Uncle Fred is so difficult but what precious memories you all have to cherish. I’m thinking of the time when Uncle Fred in his quiet way suggested Aunt Marcy do something to keep her hair from flying around her face. She plastered it down with nearly an entire can of Aqua Net hair spray. It was rock solid after that. We all thought it was so funny. I have pictures of Uncle Freddie holding both Kris and Natty Rae as babies.
    Daughter and granddaughter. Special times treasured memories.
    You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Always in our hearts. We love you all.💞
