To The Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. Freda and Doug were friends and neighbors of ours years ago. Bob and Doug were on the Malden Volunteer Fire Dept. together. Such good people. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God Bless.

Our families have shared so many church memories from rand, then my parents and Kim's (and davids) parents shared many more from north side Nazarene. Our parents were close friends. Doug and Freda visited my parents often when mom was dying, freda always brought good food and lots of smiles. After mom died, I became friends with Freda, comforting each other. Now Freda is with the love of her life, Doug. Love, hugs, prayers for kim and David and their families. I will always cherish our memories. Love and miss you, beautiful Freda.
