Dear Lora Dean,
We were very sorry to hear of Fred's passing. We only found out about his death today, at church.
Fred was one of the first to greet us when we built our home here in 1997.
Fred was always kind to everyone. As you know, he had a tremendous testimony of his Savior and served him well.
We mourn with you. We ask Heavenly Father to bless you and your family during this difficult time; we will remember you in our prayers.
Please call on us at anytime.
With Love,
Bruce and Joyce Hartman

Jean and family, I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing. He visited my dad quite a few times at dad's senior living. He was definitely a very spiritual man. Our thoughts and prayers are with all your family.
