Dear Sally and Family, We know the loss, and feel the pain of such a great guy. We thank both of you for the friendship and companionship that you have shared with my parents. We will miss Fred, and know that Dad was heart broken over the loss. You both have touched so many lives and will be remembered with special prayers in our hearts. The Pederson Family.

Dear Tom, Nanci and Girls: I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I was out of town and just checked my e-mails and heard the news. Because I've been sick and haven't really up to date on this, I didn't realize how ill your dad was. I'm so sorry I haven't been more involved. If I had been I would have known more about this. Please forgive me for not being more involved. You all mean so much to me. I don't tell you often as I should but you all are very special to me and I appreciate all that you do. You are loved so much. You are the sweetest, kindest, caring people and I feel terrible that I've fallen short of being there for you all during your difficult time. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me. Some days are just such a struggle. If I put on my make up and "show up" for something people just assume you're doing great but they don't have a clue what's really going on inside. It's nobody's fault. It's just the way it is. I just don't want you to think I've ignored you. I just did not know. I will be praying for your whole family. I'll call and check to see when you all are home. Once again, I am just so sorry. I love you all!!! Lynne Lewis

Tom, we are sharing our deepest sympathy with you and your family. It is so sad to be left behind, but one day you all will be together again. Isn't life interesting to have you drive every day down to Norfolk for work lately ?. Maybe it was ment to give you the opportunity to spend time with your Dad before you had to say good-by to him. We are praying for you and your family. You are in our thoughts. With love Jim & Angelika.
