And for the second time this week I read sad news, but as stated before
another of our family continues his journey. I met Frela almost at the same
time I met Debbie, I am not going to say all that has been said already
suffice it to say Frela you will be missed and are already missed. However
travel on friend and see you one day.
Debbie as I wrote to Patti you know if you need anything please pick up the
telephone. Many big hugs dear lady.

Dear FCB Family,
I come to you again, all too soon with difficult news. Frela passed away
peacefully this afternoon. His devoted wife, Debbie and friends were all
around him at their local Hospice House. As most know, Frela has fought a
long hard battle with 2 very aggressive types of cancer.
Frela loved FCB and especially our affiliate, Guide Dog Users of Florida. It
was his wish that Florida host the Top Dog conference in January. With some
wonderful volunteers and great team work, we will carry out that wish and
make it the best it can be without Frela.
It was Frela's desire that rather than a memorial service, people remember
him by, in his words, "doing something good in my name." If you would like
to remember Frela, you may make donations to Southeastern Guide Dogs,
Florida Council of the Blind or Mophet Cancer Treatment Center. Debbie will
be sending a message in the near future with all the contact information for
these "good" organizations that Frela loved and supported.
Please remember Debbie, Frela's brother and their family in your prayers. I
talked to Debbie earlier and though she has a heavy heart, she has a sweet
spirit of peace, thanks to her very strong faith. She knows Frela is home,
safe in the arms of our Lord Jesus and is no longer suffering.
Frela, my brother, I will miss you and your laid back manner and incredible
intelligence. I am so happy I had the all too brief time to get to know you
and call you friend. Thank you for your patience, your laughter and for
letting me stroke your lovely beard. I will even miss asking you to repeat
yourself a hundred times because I couldn't ever hear you on the phone. Be
at peace, gentle spirit and know your wife will be cared for until she gets
up there to you.
Dearest Debbie, I can not even begin to imagine your loss and pain. I am
hear for you any time. I will continue to lift you up in prayer and I know
that God in his kindness will bring you peace and comfort in the many
beautiful and happy memories that you and Frela made together.
I love you, Friend.
