I believe I knew John Frasard and I think his wife's name is Kathy. We all went to the same church in SCS. Haven't had any contact with them in years but always remember John as a very loving gentle person and Kathy as a very sweet friend. My prayers and thoughts are with all the families and friends who are grieving.

My sympathies to all of the families. I was a customer for many years at Nicks and Bill and Alice always were kind and helpful. I am so sorry Alice for your loss. Sending prayers. Ann Derscha
