    Wow - just wow! So much love for his wife - wish we saw this more often.

    And the kindness of the group running the contest is so wonderful to see.

    My daughter and a co-worker both bought the song after they saw the video.

    ABC evening news made him their Person of the Week, yesterday. The whole thing brought me to tears, but I also got a good chuckle out of the grandson reporting that Fred had asked his family "who is this Justin Timberlake, I just passed him on iTunes." :) (yesterday the song had hit #5 on the iTunes chart)
