Dear Martha, was surprised to hear of Fred’s death as I got an email from him last week about CDB meds. So sorry to hear this. Fred was a good friend of my late husband, Milton Hickman- they played ball together at Sunset.
He was a nice man and will be missed. I will be lifting you in prayer. Sue Hickman-Frasier
