Freeman was my cousin, although much older than me, so only got to see him in his later years when he would visit my mom, Ruth Cameron and my sister, Pat in Centreville, Digby County, Nova Scotia in the summer. The last time I saw freeman, I took him for a tour of the farm where his mom (my aunt), Hazel grew up before she left for Lynn, Massachusetts as a young woman. He enjoyed wandering around the property that day in his dress shoes, as my sister, Carolyn mentioned...

Cousin Freeman loved to visit relatives here in Nova Scotia in the summer. He would arrive unexpectedly with his little dog and spend a week or so with my Mom, his Aunt Ruth. We would sometimes go for drives along Digby Neck and take the ferry over to the Islands, often stopping at the little coves. I will always remember Freeman walking on the rocky Bay of Fundy shore, wearing his dress shoes! We have lots of good memories. Rest in Peace, Freeman.

Mr. Freeman was my neighbor for the past four years and I never saw a person with such passion for gardening. My family and pets will miss him dearly. Even in the hottest days of the summer there was always a outside job for you to be done. You even showed my boys a few tactics with tools along the way. The awesome books, landscape help and even dog treats your small acts of kindness towards us will be missed. I’m going to miss seeing you grab your paper early each morning and hanging out back enjoying nature ... May you Rest In Peace Mr. Freeman!

My cousin Freeman enjoyed summer visits with my Mom, myself & other family members on his visits to Nova Scotia prior to Moms death in 2015. He loved the seafood, the cool salty breezes & the night sky. He would comment the stars seemed so much brighter there. I told him he was a little closer to heaven in Nova Scotia. He liked that. Rest In Peace Freeman

Freeman was my cousin but lived a considerable distance from me here in Nova Scotia. I remember seeing him during his visits here with his Mom & Dad & in more recent years his visits to my mother ( his Aunt Ruth). Rest in peace Freeman.
