So extremely appreciative of the US Army Service of Captain Fred Bondurant for our country, and his long service to others through the Rotary Club and the Masons. Prayers go out to his family and many friends in their loss, yet he finally gets to join his beloved Savior Jesus in Paradise. What a great example of a life of service and honor for all to consider.
