Our family were one of Dr. Freeman’s first patient and we chose him because he was the only Dentist at the time that would take children. Our girls were 5 and he was amazing with them. Our daughters are 42 years old now. I moved away 25 years ago with Mike to follow me later with the girls still in Cullman and being patients as adults. Our memories are numerous Mike and I remember when we were having the majority of our work done he would say oh I am so thankful for you this is paying a payment on my sailboat lol! He was genuine and a wonderful friend, Yes he told us every time we left how much he loved s and appreciated us. It pains me that now we are retiring and moving back home that he won’t be there and most of all we waited to late to reconnect! To his family we know you know what wonderful person he was and we will miss him forever! Loving prayers to his wonderful family!

Doc. Freeman was my father's (Wilbur Arnold) dentist. I would see him each time I carried daddy for his appointments. Such a sweet man. Not only did he hug daddy but also me as we were leaving. He always got the biggest kick out of the Christmas cards we sent each year of daddy, me and our dog Tessa (who also came along on appointments). He'd put them in daddy's file. He was so attentive to daddy's limits due to age and always made sure I knew what was going on. He loved daddy and daddy loved him. THANK YOU Doctor Freeman for all the kindness you showed my father and me. R.I.P

Doctor Freeman was my dentist for over 30 years. He always took his time with me as I grew older. I am 94 today and deaf/legally blind. He always ended our appointments with a hug. I can't imagine not seeing him for the appointment I was to have next week. R.I.P. my friend. You will be greatly missed.

I am so shocked and saddened to hear of Dr. Freeman's death. He became our family dentist back in 1983, when my daughter had a bike accident and broke off the bottom of her upper two front teeth. He did an excellent job with her, and he became our dentist. He and I shared many stories of family and faith over the years, and he never failed to ask about family members. He always wanted to repair my teeth at the point of excellence and my daughter's teeth still look good after all these years, in fact a dentist in the state of Washington told her he did a great job!!! But most of all, he will be greatly missed in this community and my heart goes out to all his family and the great office staff.
