    Mr Doucette was a pleasure to know and spend time with even up to his last days. As I hope everyone k ew Fred had late stage Parkinson diese whi h be kept to himself until about 6 mo ths ago when he started having more trouble with shaking seizes. Fred and I sat allot on his front porch drinki g beers and watching the boats go by. I was able to get fred on my pontoon boat a couple times this last summer when he felt up to it. Everyone always thought Fred was a little crazy, when we didn’t know about his diese. Fred would get up in the morning wearing just his britches and walk to the lake in plain sight of everyone, we all laughed about it. Fred was also a ladies man he had 5 or 6 different young women staying over in the year I knew him. Fred said they were over to help him with cleaning? We all seen there was a little more going on than cleaning. Fred was a good friend to me and our friends at the lake and he will be missed dearly. Fred will always remain in our memories and will be remembered fondly when we’re sitting around the lake having beers. Thanks Fred for the memmories.

    My Dearest Fred,
    I didn’t know you long but in the time I did, you made me love you! It took a minute to get use to you running around in the suit God gave you on your birthday! lol I’ll never forget cooking dinner for you and Michael, you came into the kitchen to talk to me and I looked up to a bare naked man! lol
    I’ll never forget finding you on the floor. I was so scared for you! Holding you and praying with and over you before they took you to the hospital. There was one thing you made me promise, that I would take Princess if anything happened to you! I promised with tears in my eyes! She misses you Fred but she’s doing great.
    One thing I’ll never forget is our last moments together. I prayed with you. I told you that you were going to see your dad. After all the noice of the machines were turned off it was just you and I in silence. I played you “Jealous of the Angels”! I prayed that God took you Home peacefully. I sat and held your hand and cried until I watched you take your last breath at 8:54 am. I sat for another hour or so with you. It was so hard to leave you. I’ve shed many tears over your passing but I know one thing to be true, God took you Home that day. I felt a peace when you took your last breath. I love you Fred! Thank you for coming into my life!

    Dear Fred,
    I know I wasn’t your most favorite roomie that you ever had, but I also know that we treated each other like family. We said good morning and good night to each other every day. Princess, too. While I know I could be loud, especially with the music, you did say “I love it” in regards to the Good News music that we usually listened to. I’d always ask, “Are you sure it ain’t to loud?” You were ”No, I’m liking what they said.” I’m not sorry for that. At all. I am sorry, my friend, for offending or aggravating you in any other way shape or form.
    I will always remember the very last day we spent together. Although it certainly wasn’t my favorite day ever, it’s nice to know you were still treating me like a son or nephew by getting on my butt about being slow to clean the stove top. Hey, I’m getting her done, Unc! I needed a smoke break…LOL
    I miss you, Fred. I’m so very glad to know that you made your peace with God. That means we’ll see one another again. I look forward to that day some day.
    Fred, Princess is good. I was with yesterday. She misses you. She was happy to see me, though. Her and I were always buddies. You know that. She’s being looked after by good people. Tina has kept her word. We’re all helping with Princess. She’s a good girl.
    Goodbye for now, Slick Rick.
    Please forgive me for my Drunken Scottish Hillbilly Dancing on the porch, etc. I’m sorry for any aggravation, Sir. No offense ever meant. You know that. Scared of me you were not.
    We definitely shared a bunch of laughs and more than a few cheese pizzas from the market on the hill. Not bad…Oh yeah, you and you BBQ wings,too! Can’t forget those!! LOL
    Until we meet again,
    Your Pain in the Butt Roommate,
    Michael Henry Campbell
