I knew Fred for years as co-worker, & he was a dedicated worker who took pride in his work& always gave more than 100%. He later attended Morning Star Christian Fellowship, and he became friends with my husband & me. He fought many physical battles & struggled to get to church, & into church, but he faithfully came. He was a wonderful & compassionate man with a hunger to help those less fortunate, and he was always helping with the Operation Christmas Child, for so many years, doing all he could to help despite his physical limitations. Fred, you did great! You are now face to face with the Heavenly Father you loved, and He is saying "Well done, Good & Faithful Servant!" Enjoy your well earned glory days, Fred, we will miss you!
