Kilian a model for entire community

As I was baking for our Thanksgiving meal this past Wednesday, I thought of the preparations the Kilian family is making. I want them to know that among all our blessings, we count Fred's life as one of them.

We have known Fred since high school. We held him in high regard then, and our respect for Fred has steadily increased through the years. Our paths have crossed many times in various capacities. We have enjoyed that crossing and will miss it.

Fred has been a model for his family and community to emulate. He served where needed with courage, determination and common sense. His faith was alive. He loved his family. He wanted to help improve the land and our community. Education was important to him, as was honesty and lack of pretense. He was a solid citizen.

My husband Jim and I regret his leaving us and extend our prayers for his family. But we are thankful to have seen the impact of his life all around our Valley.
