Fred, my brother-in-law, was an honest, decent, well loved and respected member of our family. I have many fond memories of him. Just to mention one, we are both seafood lovers. He was the only one who could beat me in eating small sea snails and crabs in a super-fast and clean way.
I did not expect to celebrate Fred’s life today; I was thinking of celebrating his life at his 80th birthday and again at his 90th birthday. I don’t know why God gave life and nurtured him to be such a good person and faithful servant yet took him away when he was still energetic and had many things he wanted to achieve. God, you must have had a purpose.
