Fred, we all still miss you here at Capital One. You touched our lives and you especially touched mine. You were always so giving of your time to teach me. Every time that Jay takes care of something that you used to take care of, tears still come to me. You are a beautiful angel up there in heaven now. The Lord wanted you and so I am thrilled for you. We are just sad down here.... Thank you for everything you did for all of us and I can tell by the pictures that you were a wonderful husband and Dad to your family. Nancy, and all of you, I continue to pray for you....May God grant you only the peace that he can give. Linda
