Dear Linda,

So sorry for your loss. Fred was a great mentor to me as a rookie on the Broyhill sales force and a great partner. He taught me a ton about the art of sales, and his sense of humor was priceless. The world is a better place because of Fred, and the world will miss him.

Dear Linda,

I like to remember Fred when I would come by in the summer and you both would be enjoying the quiet at dusk sitting in your garage. Even then, he rarely sat for any length of time. He and I had our love for cutting the grass in common and with his dry sense of humor he would wonder why I did not cut your grass as long as I had my mower out and was cutting our lawn. Fred always had a kind word for me and I will miss seeing him here on this earth. I know that he was your life partner for so many years and the prayers and best wishes of Maria and I are with you as you deal with this loss.

With fond regards,

Fred had a kind soul and such a lovely smile. Always happy to listen or give a hand, like when our mower got stuck and here comes Fred to assist. We can hope to be neighbors in heaven again one day. Linda and family, may God bless and keep you and give you peace. Godspeed friend, we will miss you. Jerry & BJ
