    I’ll be there in spirit. Fred was a huge influence over the last 45 years. He’s greatly missed

    Dear Mrs. Pohl: Thanks for sending the bulletin about the Master’s Memorial. He deserves that hommage and our remembrance. I shared the notice through my “Facebook” account. I do not like the social nets a lot, but in occasions like this I gladly use it. My greetings to you.
