Dearest Sheila and family:
My thoughts & prayers are with each and every one of you. I did not know Fred well as he always seemed like the quiet type, however he was a very personable man and always stood out in a crowd to me. It didn't matter where I saw him, he always gave me a smile and a nod. I am sure I speak for many when I say he will be missed.

I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to Sheila and the Armstrong family. He was such a nice man and will be missed by all who knew him. It will seem strange to go to a dance, musical concert, plowing match, etc., and not see Fred and Sheila there, up dancing and enjoying life. May God bless you all.
