Fred Maloof and I came in contact years ago and I like many, purchased rings from him in his store on Mack ave. At the time my shop was blocks away and I was thrilled to hear of his plans to come to St. Clair Shores. As the years go by he has steadfastly shown his generosity to this city and in a lasting tribute to the many families like my own, My children's children will be able to enjoy the blessings he has bestowed upon the city that he so loves. Your a good man Fred and I am honored to have shared this dedication day with you and yours.
