    When I first moved to the neighborhood in 1972, Mr. Fraser made me feel welcome from the first day I met him. As a terribly shy child, his joking manner made me laugh and feel at ease. Along with Mrs. Fraser’s kind, friendly manner, I spent many hours of my childhood and teenage years at the Fraser’s home where I was treated like family. I absolutely loved Mr. Fraser because I could always count on a good laugh in his presence. I’ve never met anyone who laughed as much as Mr. Fraser. He was a kind, warm man who cared deeply for those he loved, and he was bigger than life! When thinking of him, this quote comes to mind: “BEHIND EVERY GREAT DAUGHTER IS A TRULY AMAZING DAD!” You will be greatly missed Mr. Fraser!

    There’s very few people in this world you want for neighbors but Jimmy Fraser is who you would want for a neighbor. Not only was he a good friend in the horse business but also like a brother to me.

    May the Holy Spirit comfort you as you mourn and may He bring you peace. You are such an awesome family—I remember the days when “Pop” hung out at Hair Reflections for the better part of his day. My prayers and thoughts are with you all.

    This man was a big part of my life when I was growing up. Always treated us like family. Even though the years takes people in different directions there have been so many times that my thoughts have taken me back to those days and the memories of the man Jimmy was has brought a smile to my face. Always put God and family first, a sense of humor like nobody else and always had a kind word for those that needed it. He will be sorely missed. My love to Linda, the girls and the rest of the family. I have you all in my prayers.

    Words cannot express the feeling I have for this GOOD MAN , Respect and Love are the first that come to mind. He was my friend and source of wonderful and fun times for over 50 years, During this time his family and ours became very close and I cannot think of anyone or any other family that we have enjoyed and love being a part of our lives as much as Jimmy , Linda and the girls and now their Families. RIP JIMMY you will be in our thoughts and prayers forever. DANNY, CATHY AND ALL OF THE MASSEY FAMILY
