Fred you are heavy on my mind, I wish I would have told you I love you more and hugged you more. I wish I could have eased the pain you were in and settle your mind down. You were an awesome person with a huge heart. And a amazing dog daddy. The love you have for your Boo (Bella) and the same love she had back for you. We had alot of great times growing up together. Playing in the river at reunions and playing in your family's yard on Kraft. And stepping on them God damn pickers bear footed. I remember the long walks down the driveway after school. You Tom,Leesa and me. We really did have great times. All memories I cherish. I love you big guy and I will see you and Bella again one day. And I want them hugs from you. I love you cuz rest easy now you are pain free
Words can't express the pain and heartbreak we feel in times like this. You are loved by many and will be missed. Rest peacefully, Fred. I love you ❤️
I was a neighbor to Fred for many years. He always waved,, Hello. He was always with his dog. Whether it was playing fetch, or just relaxing. That dog loved him.. He was a very nice person. He will be missed. So very sad. His family will be in our thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Tamara Nyland
