I am so sorry for your loss. May God comfort your mourning hearts. I pray that you find comfort in Revelation 21:3-5. This scripture paints a picture of a world that is very different from what we see today. A world with no more sickness, pain or death...and it is not a dream, it is a promise from God. He promises to reverse the effects of death and resurrect your precious Frederick. You will never have to say a painful goodbye ever again! Jw.org

Freddie may have been a member of the MRDD group, but he had a good memory of who his extended family was. I only met Freddie years after his unfortunate accident in a car crash, but every time I would see him, whether he was walking or working, he knew I was married to one of his many cousins and would call me by my husband's name. Freddie had a generous spirit that was diminished as the years went by; I hadn't seen him lately, but others told me how he was doing. Rest in peace, Freddie. GOD knows who you are!
