    To the Hoffman family: Uncle Fred will be missed. He and I shared a love for photography and he taught me a few tricks of the trade. His sister and my mother, Karen (Hoffman)Reeves always kept me up to date on Uncle Fred. He is now in the hands of Jesus, on this Easter weekend. You’re in my prayers and thoughts. Love, Scott Reeves
