|Let the memory of Fred be with us forever|
"This Christmas I ran across a a small plaque that said: "I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck"......I finished it in my heart with what my Daddy would always say ".....and a barrel and a heap and I talk about you in my sleep sweetie." Not a day goes by that I don't think of something he said or did. I miss him sooooo much!"
"Love you THE MOST!!

"He was a great brother.He loved to tease me. when he came to visit he would want to fish but he made me bait the hook and take the fish off the hook!!! He loved to tell stories .My husbands name is Don but he would call him Donald Duck..."
"Where to start... My papa was a awesome man and a great person, he was so funny and always made people smile and laugh, he had all the best jokes and he knew how to make me smile more then anyone I know. He was also a ladies man! And lord knows he would try his hardest to throw me under the bus when around some pretty girl haha. He was the best! I will always remember him as being my PAPA! And the stories he told me growing up I will carry on to tell my children and so forth. He had no problem taking me in and taking care of me when I came to KY and he showed me a lot about them old horses he loved to bet on, he knew his stuff. I will miss him so much. He has inspired me in so many ways, and he is always in my thoughts. And my Grammy too. Papa I love you! And I wish you could of seen my daughter Kori, you would of had such a blast with her and Owen. Owen is such a lucky kid to have meet you. He still talks about you and he just has so many things to say. We love you! I am truly blessed to have had you in my life. Chad-rack-me shack and....... You know the rest papa."
"My daddy....Always Laughing and smiling through life and this song is EXACTLY HIM! and he loved the song too...He was always there for me no matter what and well I miss you daddy terribly. There is not a day goes by I dont mimic your voice , tell your jokes or stories and share memories of US. Your sense of humour and all that makes you YOU.. I carry not only in my heart wherever I go, but you live on in me for that is the only way I too can go on with out you...You are my BEST friend and confidant ALWAYS... I cant wait to be with you again in HEAVEN LOVE YOU SOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!"
