    I’m so sad to read this news..BUT, so happy to know that Fred and Josephine are back together, holding hands! I enjoyed Fred’s visits at Madonna Manor, he was extremely kind, with great stories of he and Josephine, how they met and fell in love! I’ll never forget all the bags of peaches from his trees that he would bring in, for all of us to share!-lovely couple, and lovely family! May they rest in Peace. Blessings to you all- Katy Bouffard
