My deepest sympathy to Mr Durand's family in the crossing over of Fred to our heavenly Fathers kingdom.
Fred now breaths in freely the love of God and dances with his lovely lady forever without tirering.
I am so honored to have know him, even for just a short time he has changed my life forever. Thank you Fred
