Fred, I appreciate all the calls to made to me to see how I was doing. You are a wonderful brother-in-law. You would inquire about the family to see how they were doing. Even though we didn't see each other as much. you and Christy were always in my prayers. I think back of the days long gone and the get togethers we did have. Thankful for the memories that last forever. I loved that you called me sis. Colleen Van Wagoner.
