  1. Dear Brud, Nancy & Family, It is with great sadness that I hear, our cousin, your brother & uncle, Fred passed away. He was such a gentle, kind man, as I knew him & so close to the Lord. It is with happiness & consolation that I know he will be reunited with your Mom & Dad & have the happiness of Heaven. I did contact both Jody Willett-Moore & Wayne Willett to let them know & will let Carol Purvis know when I hear from her on e-mail. She is on a sailboat with her boyfriend down in Mexico someplace, I heard at Christmas time. I know you & Fred helped her so much with Ronnie, over the years, so I know she would want to know. I will keep all of you in my prayers & Jody & I talked about our “Cousin” gathering in 1998 in Long Beach & how much we learned about Grandma Willett from you & Fred, as you both had spent time with her that we never had the opportunity to experience. We also so treasure her picture that you shared with us & all the memories as children growing up. God’s Blessings to all of you for your time & treasure with Fred. I know it is a great loss for everyone, but we must remember his wonderful hearty laugh!!! Love, Bobbie Willett Fivecoate

  2. Art, You and Fred have always been our very special cousins. We send our Condolences to you and your family. Love, Jan & Susie Fry
