To Annette Barry Shelly and the rest of the family. I can't tell you what a blessing Freddie and you guys have been to Jackie and I. Annette thank you for remembering us with a phone call...that meant a lot to both of us. I want you to know that Freddie treated me just like a son which was no easy task to do and always seemed to treat everyone else like family. Freddie was a blessing to me and everyone I ever saw him encounter, Truly a Great Man who loved his family. I'm sure he's enjoying God's presence and I'm grateful that one day we will all be together eternally. David & Jackie King

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I have such fine memories at Redbird Creek and how wonderful neighbors you were to me and Andy. May God be with you during this time! Love to you all!

I know your heart is breaking. Both of you had such an amazing marriage. You with him these last few years proved what a wonderful and loving relationship you two had. He will be missed by all that knew him. He had such a loving nature and so very friendly. Remember, I am just around the corner if you need anything or a shoulder to cry on. May God bless you and your family.
