    That smile said it all. That's the fond memory I have of you, when my brother bought you to San Diego to meet the family your warmth and personality spoke volumes. When I think of you now that's what I see "your smile" RIH Sherry Collier-Goodrum

    Fred we met as early teens in a time where Fremont had a way about us. We made it through. We never made our planned fishing trip, but I will make you fishers of men if you follow me. So we were always fishing together. Love you Fred Paul Laster
