Fred and I started at the Center School with Teacher Thelma Stewart and then to Townville where we graduated in 1964. Fred was a great friend and we triple dated after graduation with another friend for over 6 months. One weekend we made a trip to Pittsburgh to see a girl he was dating and on the way the hood of my car popped up and bent into the roof of the car. We stopped and with others help took it off and went on to Pittsburgh for the weekend. Good memoriez and a good friend.
Wish we could be there but you are in our prayers and on my mind. May God comfort and give you all peace and strength. Thank God memories will remain.

I took care of Fred at home since December through Visiting Nurses. I am so very sorry for your loss. They were truly a joy to spend time with. She made me banana bread and he always made me laugh. They will be missed dearly. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I am truly heartbroken for the entire family.
