My wish is that you, as his brother, would have tried to form a relationship with him. He reached out to you, but you were adamant that he ruined your childhood. Im letting everyone know you never checked on our father. It was only when he was on life support that you had a friend come to make sure he was going to die. You stole your brothers (and sister) coins. You dont fall far from the tree of greed and youre using grandmas love of her children. If she truly knew who loved her, shed kick you out in a heartbeat. But shes a mother, and no matter what you do behind her back, she will defend you until the end. I will always know the lies you told her, including her other son and his wife. What makes me smile is that dad wanted me to defend her, but nobody else had the balls or the moral fortitude to do so.

Also, I want to say that when you desire to speak about a loved one and get to the podium, so much is going through your head but pain will push your thoughts away. Im sure nobody will be criticizing what was said, I only wish I had said more about dad. It upsets me that what I wanted to say, I didnt.

My wish for Fred is that he is nestled in Love and Light, and that we, as the family, can find peace and healing in our own lives.

Thank you, Butch. My dad adored hanging out with you, he looked forward to those fishing trips so much. Truly was a blessing he met people like you.

Fred helped me so much when we started Tarheel Towing. His advice, loans from the bank and just being a friend helped us through the years. Prayers for the family.

I met Fred when I joined Rotary. We sat together at "the Boy Scout table" for years. We worked together on Rotary projects, I banked with Fred, and fished with Fred. I have a picture of Fred & "other Rotarians" after an obx charter with Capt. Duke, all of us trying to dance the "Can Can"! So many good times & wonderful memories! My sincere condolences to the family!

Thank you, Jimmy. We are so hurt. It made me and my twin smile tonight because we just cant sleep.

Prayers for the family. Fred was my first roommate at Campbell University in the fall of 1973. Even though I used crutches and braces to get around, he treated me just like everybody else. Yet he was always willing to help if I needed any. My friend from New York, what are the probabilities that my roommate from Campbell would wind up living and working in my hometown? Wished I had checked up on him more often over the years.....
