The last few days for me have been much sadder and emotional than I ever anticipated. I truly did not even realize I was as attached to Fred as I am. It was not until late Saturday when I left Benezette for the first time after he passed and I by reflex still found myself cutting glances in yards and fields to see if I could catch a glimpse of ole’ Freddie. Looking for Fred is as ingrained in my traveling routine as putting the key in the ignition is. Now whenever I leave home and drive down Winslow Hill, I just feel a bit of sadness in my heart.
I wanted to say something here that would be profound or that would capture the essence of Fred in words, but all I feel now is sadness. Instead I will let the photos you all sent me speak for themselves.
Rest in peace Fred, your legend will never die!
