Jim and Cheryl Ann, I was saddened to learn of your Father’s passing. He was always such a joy to be around, always had a new joke and was always there to lend a helping hand. I will forever be so very grateful to him as he was such a comfort and a huge help to my Mom during my Dad’s extended illness. He was truly one of a kind. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy, and forgive my absence as you lay him to rest.

So long to one of Monaca's finest. Mr. Fredericks was the kind of man I wish I could be more like. He was the genuine article. No matter what kind of day he had he was always Mr.Positive. He always had a nice thing to say or an interesting story to tell. I will miss his jokes but more than that I will miss this wonderful man. RIP Tom you have earned it.

Dear Cheryl and Jim, We were saddened to hear of the death of your father. Sandy and I have been away in Maryland with our daughter and could not attend the services for Tom. He was a wonderful person who brightened the days of many in this world with his quick wit, outlandish jokes, and his gentle spirit. I appreciated being able to get to know him as he served as the Head Usher, Trustee, and generally hard worker for our church. He was missed when he was no longer able to do those things he loved doing. He will be even further missed now that his presence is gone from us. God has blessed you with the gift of his life and love for all these years. Tom is in the loving arms of the God he trusted and served all these years. God is with you in your loss and in your joy as you remember all those stories that reflect Tom's life.

Well now Tom can be with his beautiful wife Shirley. I enjoyed taking care of Tom at Friendship Ridge. I never got tired of his jokes even if I heard them before. The poem that Tom wrote about Shirley was so filled with love for her. He will be sadly missed at Friendship Ridge. Love, Mona

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I have so many fond memories of Tom when we would come to visit with Tom and Shirley in my younger days and the jokes he would tell always made me laugh. I am sorry I couldn't be there for the service.

Bryan I'm sorry I couldn't be there. Pop-Pop was the grandfather I never had. He and Grandma made me family and I loved them dearly. I keep them close to my heart. I was so blessed to have them a part of my life. I pray that you are at peace that pop-pop is with grandma where he belongs. She was his life. He was her life. We had many laughs and happy memories. God Bless all of you.
