We remember the excellent job that he always did for many projects in our home of 42 years. There were ALWAYS challenges of his expertise! His devotion to The Lord, his wife, and family were admirable! We will miss his smiling face!

I do not recall a time when he was without a smile. He was always very warm and welcoming. It has always been an honor to know him and the Freeman family.
