Deacon Fred was everything I could have asked for in a father-in- law. He's the perfect example of what a man should be. He's definitely a true man of God, loving and kind. Now he's made it to Mt Zion . He will always be loved & missed!

I was a friend of Fred and Thelma for over 20 years and we have a bond (Their and my husband share the same wedding anniversary. 1 April ) Thelma said she wanted to get married on Easter Sunday and that year it was on April fools. She said her sister did not like that day. But it is a day I will always rember so much love shared between them. I am glad they are together.
