hendrixx2 (FredX or Fred from Chicago) joined us in February 2012, just 3 months after losing his dear Donna Jean. He was a regular contributor to our blog posts, was a mainstay in the chat room and volunteered at our Help Desk. His calm, kind demeanor and easy-going personality will be greatly missed.

I am now just discovering the passing of Fred. Wherever you are Fred thank you so much for the times that we spent chatting on the boards. I enjoyed your writings and your positive spirit. Now that you are reunited with your DJ, life is great again. I will always hold you in my heart as an angel who I never met but for a while, helped me along my very difficult journey. Godspeed Fred.
Big daddy Fred, I am gonna Miss You. You were one in a million... A man of Timber and Calibre like we like to say in Nigeria...yes!, your influence was global! When I would be drowning in the midst of all the female voices in Widowed village Chat room, Fred would come to my rescue (LOL!!!) Aah, I am gonna miss you sir. I however take solace in the fact that you are gonna see my Joan or better still have seen her and told her to take it easy that I was doing my best to carry on as she has advised me to. I never knew you physically but all that I knew in the virtual world was enough. When you are a great guy, you don't have to make a great fuss....everyone will sooner or better still already know who you are....' Rest on Big Daddy Fred
I have lost my words but Fred was one of my first contacts after being widowed and losing my son...... Good God His words saved my life................Miss him dearly
He was a wonderful man who will be missed by many. He helped me and so many others in the widowed community. So glad I got to meet him in person twice in Chicago. Will never forget the day we went sky diving. Love and miss you (((Fred)))
He was assigned as my tech buddy and we talked a lot but not in chat. I met him the first night I joined and jumped straight into chat. He was a very dear friend. I am so thankful I got to meet him in Memphis and in Chicago when we went skydiving. He will be greatly missed. He helped so many here and in HT.
Fred was a dear friend.. I could call him anytime day or night and talk to him about anything. He always had a listening ear and gave great advice. Anything from cooking to whatever.. He was an incredible person, kind hearted, giving and the list goes on. I will always remember you Fred. Im sorry I never got the chance to meet you in person and im going to take your advice. Life is to short and its time to do things.
Gone in body but alive in Spirit. No need for the parachute or an airplane now as he soars now as he did in this life.. Though I never met this wonderful man, I believe each he spoke to will always remember him.. His kindness, wisdom and understanding and his ability to help others in life and in their time of grief was an amazing gift that he possessed. Each who knew him knew where his heart was and how much he missed his wonderful wife.. As we all know death hurts , it makes us different , it breaks us down.. But this man through his experience gave us new life, he gave us hope, he gave us himself, unwavering and unconditionally.. Now he and his beautiful wife fly high together , for now for our dear friend it truly is High Times.. Forever and always , You will be Missed......
Sometimes there are no words to express the feelings from the heart. Fred, I still can't believe you've left us. I will never forget our times in chat, they really saved me. Chat was one of the first places I laughed after Tom died. I'll cherish his friendship forever. Our skydiving trip together was really something memorable and I'm so glad we got to do it together.
