Mrs. Freed was one of the sweetest person I’ve ever met. She would always call my name when she saw me to talk. She always admired our front yard and would tell my husband he does a great job. Her smile was always bright and cheery. I will miss her so much but I know she a Guardian Angel watching over us. I love you Mrs. Freed and I’ll always will because you reminded me of my Mom!

Mrs Freed used to walk the block and would take a minute to say hi. Always a nice warm smile to brighten my day. My prayers are with family, friends, and neighbors that were privileged to know her.

Mrs. Freed was EVERYONE'S Mom at Saint Martin Academy! She was fun, effervescent, and always up for a class field trip.

May God bless her and I KNOW she was there to greet my Dad this past Friday and do some major catching up.

Much love to the Freed Family.
