    My sincerest sympathy to Uncle Freddy. I spent a lot of time when I was a kid visiting him and Aunt Pat at their farm in Evans Mills when my dad, Fred’s brother John, used to help him with haying. Truly fine people. All my thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Pat and Fred were neighbors, living near my family Grocery & Gas Store. I use to ride my Bicycle to their farm to visit. They were very loving and kind people. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
