To the entire family,
My deepest sympathy to all of your family. I enjoyed talking with Fred and Eloise when they came to visit in Illinois. He was always down to earth and easy to chat with.
Comfort and peace to Delinda, Todd and all of the children, Jodi, Mike and Ella, Candace, Bev and DeWayne and family and of course Eloise.

God Bless you all in this time of strife and sorrow.
