Condolence & Memory Journal

I just read in the Ciursillo Newsletter today from February that he passed away! Embarrassing to say but always wait to read them,Father Dans comments, good and happy news also! First I saw the happy newes of my fourth cousin and her husband Ellen McNerney then Fred Keck! Jean was my daughters sponsor for confirmation May God bless them both!! As one day I asked them both a ? I was told I might not see my family relatives by one of my family relatives because we r here for the Glory of God! I told her that made no sense Love is the Greatest and why come back or want to if we could not see our loved ones in a new light or body!! Jean and Fred assured me I was right!!! For if not for Love where would we go into that gd night or light?????

To all of Fred's family and long list of friends, My deepest sympathy. I was shocked to hear of Fred's passing away so suddenly. I feel terrible that I was in Florida and did not know until we returned on 12/4/17. I would have been honored to be a pallbearer for Fred, if I were here.I was so glad to hear of the large turnout for his visitation and funeral mass. I would expect nothing else for someone so well liked. He was a great leader of our Cursillo G.R. Fred was so smart and funny at the same time! I will always cherish our time together. I'm sure he and Jean are enjoying each others company in Heaven. God Bless, Dan & Cindi

I got to know Fred through Jeannie when she and I taught together at VMA. Such a nice, gentle man whose love for his Jeannie was so evident as was her devotion to him.

And now they are together again. May they rest in peace.
