Uncle Fred - I am forever going to miss getting to see you up at the property and sharing the good talks and laughs we both would have. From seeing you at Rogers, Mountaineer, and the Farm - you were always in the best of moods and would brighten me up just the same! Thank you for the great memories throughout the years, especially the bonfires you would have. They will be cherished forever along with a smile, Uncle Fred. - Michael
