I met Fred at eating breakf I met Fred while eating breakfast at Mr. Burger with his friends. My mother-in-law Irene Andree sat at that table with him and his breakfast buddies for many years. Fred became a close friend of mine for the past 10 years because I eat there every Friday morning. Every Friday morning before he would leave he would walk over to the booth I shared with a retired friend of mine. The last time we talked was three weeks ago today. He will be dearly missed by all of his Mr.Burger friends. REST IN PEACE dear friend and loving prayers for his family.
