    October 22, 2017 - I am so saddened and sorry to hear of your loss. We love our husbands and daddies so! Sorry to seemed to have ignored you. We did not know until today because we were on a trip abroad. Fred is in the care of God and I hope you have comfort from that thought. I lost my dad at an early age, but we never forget our dad or our husband. :-) He is always in a little part of our heart, no matter how old we get. And he will never really leave you. We hold the lessons and the love forever. May you have peace is my prayer for you. I love you. Cris
