Your parents are wonderful people!!! I'm glad that they can be together again! Please accept my condolences to each of the family members in their passing! They each lived a very full life! Jeri and I were good friends throughout our growing up years. Fred and Marty would invite me to come with them on many of their family outings so that Jeri would have a friend to do things with. I appreciated all of the kindness that they extended to me as well as the many fun activities I had with them!!! You are all in my prayers!!!

I will always recall the enjoyable times I spent with Fred flying around Utah with the Civil Air Patrol. He was kind gentleman, thorough airplane mechanic, dedicated and safe search and rescue pilot, and a true friend.
