Dear Mrs.Begemanm and family. I want to extend my condolences to you after seeing Fred’s obituary in the paper. I’ve been to your home a time or two helping Fred with a small window problem and he came in to say hi a number of times and to check on some potential “goede koopjes”. It was always a pleasure and brightened my day to have him pop his head in and start speaking Dutch knowing I could manage a little Dutch myself. I will remember you in prayer and wish you the Lord’s blessing as you carry on. If my wife and I can help in any way (as we live nearby) please do let us know!

Sincerely, Stephen Kuipers

Dear Corrie and family,
Although we only met Fred twice we both enjoyed his company. He came across as an intelligent, thoughtful man. We had some pleasant conversations with him about Europe, wine making, etc. It will be so difficult for you all in the coming days and we extend our deep sympathies to you and your children.
