  6. I was blessed to have met Fred. He came in to my life and believed in me when no one else would. This man was no doubt the kindest person that I have ever met. He had a heart of gold the size of Texas! In knowing him, I was convinced that he was a living Angel her on this earth, always thinking of others and never himself. He was a beloved Family man and always put his Family first. Now he is with the Angels above and in Peace where he has already earned his heavenly wings by all of his good deeds done here on earth…. May God rest his Soul. He will never be forgotten!
