This past Friday a man that was community minded, philanthropist, and a grocery magnate died. My memories of Fred is at the opening of the Frederick Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, when he talked to me why he put particular attention to the color of who was playing which sport in the sport sculptures. He was a man that cared about bringing people together. He was a friend to everyone. I also still have my purple cow card that he gave me. You always knew that when you sat down and talked to him that you would be there awhile. You always knew that when you left his presence, that your life would be richer from his wisdom. He will truly be missed.
Commanding my morning,
Mary C. Hartfield
