I miss the way you always seemed to pop up on us. I miss calling you to say hi. Good times with you and friends. When we met you always made me smile. My daughter would see a trooper car and ask is that Mr. Fred. She loved when would do a drive by when you were leaving court. The best friend anyone could ask for. We miss you dearly. Continue watching over us. Kzoo girls.
