Richard Fredericks is 90!

Happy Birthday, Uncle Richard!

My uncle, Richard Lewis Fredericks* turns 90 this month.  His family gave him a surprise birthday party on Saturday, 16 May 2015 at the Spirit of the Woods Conservation Club in Brethren, Michigan. My husband, Kirk, and I went and I am glad I was able to celebrate this wonderful milestone with him.  Here are a couple of pictures of the party and a few older ones of Richard's younger years.
