Dear EJ, Danny, Linda and Rebecca,
Aunt Frieda was a kind and generous lady with a wonderful sense of humor! We will always cherish the fun memories of our trips to the Great Smokies and the time spent with her and cousins. She was also a loving and loyal sister to our mom Gunda and for that we are eternally grateful. Love and God Bless you always. Henry, Hazel and Jenna
