    Mr. Fred,
    I was so sorry to hear of your wife’s passing. You have had a major impact on my life as an administrator in education because of your leadership each and every day at H.G.Hills grocery store. May God Bless you and grant you the peace of Jesus.

    I have wonderful memories of Mrs. Brown and Ruthie. Many days were spent playing and growing up with Ruthie. Mrs. Brown always made me feel welcomed and was a wonderful mother and wife. She set an excellent example for us.
