Just recently Pastor Andy visited Fred and asked if there was anything he wanted to say to the congregation at High Tide. His words were “Dig Deep” so the church could be built. Even near the end he still had his sense of humor and that is one of the many things that will be missed. Electronic condolences watsonfh.com
