My sincerest condolences to the Suppes family on Freds passing. I only heard of this news on Friday. I was fortunate to have met him and Joyce at the Dealership a couple of years ago. I was glad to be given a quick history of his dealership by him. My prayers to Courtney and the rest of the family on your loss.
