I am deeply saddened to hear of Fred's passing and I offer my sincere condolences. I know you will sorely miss the joy and laughter he brought to the family. In these difficult times, you can find great comfort in the hope for the future present in the bible at Revelation 21:4. This scripture references future conditions on Earth, in which there will be no more suffering or death. There is also a hope found in John 5:28, 29.  The resurrection that this Bible verse talks about will give us the opportunity to see our lost loved ones again. I know it will be a joyous time when you can reunite with Fred!

Fred was a very dear friend to us! We shared so many good times and laughs. He always wanted to be my sugar daddy but I told him #1 He couldn’t afford me! and #2 He didn’t want to part with his money! LOL I told him to give me the mean old man face and this is what I got! We’re going to miss our beautiful friend! Love and prayers to all his family. We love you guys! ❌⭕️😘
