Jeff, Piper and the Thweatt family,
We were very saddened to read of the passing of Mr. Thweatt. If the children are any example of the parents, he must have been a very admirable person. Our prayers go out to your family and if there is anything we can do, don’t hesitate to ask.

The passing of a dear friend is a sadness, but having had his friendship has been such a blessing. Fred was always a happy and caring person. My family and I cared for Fred as a part of our family. His memory lives still in our hearts. May God Bless Fred and hold him softly in his arms.
