survival in all kinds of ways
-The good and not so
good made him brave.
started working at fourteen- working hard
mines taught him the perseverance card
the Depression- he became strong

times taught Fred compassion it seems
others in distress became his dream.
values developed character
wealth became a significant factor.

nine properties became his plan
home for each child was his goal he said
for family; Fred forged ahead.
