    Barbara and Family…I was so saddened to pick up the Athens paper last night and see Fred’s obituary in it. I’m sure this has been a devistating blow to your family as is any death. Fred was a great man who did so much for his community and I’m sure he will be missed by everyone. I appreciate you all so much welcoming me in to your home when I came down to visit with Karen. I enjoyed watching basketball with you all! It was fun watching him cheer for the Orange & White! 😉 Please know that I am praying for all of you. I pray God wraps his loving and caring arms around you and helps get you through the rough times that are bound to be ahead, especially with the holidays just around the corner. Please know I’m here if there is anything any of you need. In deepest sympathy and Christian love, Dawn Rhodes & Gary Wilson
