The heavens have truly welcomed an angel. Freda was a beautiful person inside and out. It's been so hard for me the past few days working and not seeing her smile. I miss talking to her,complimenting, and hugging her. She knew she was gorgeous, and was well deserved of all the love and respect she received each and everyday. I knew this day would come, it will for us all, but truly I was not ready to share her with the heavens! Lots of Love, Respect, and Prayers for the family.
