Sweet, precious Mrs. Fricks lived right next door to my father, Sam Freeman before he passed away May 28th after 2 months of hospitalization. When dad began to lose weight, she would alter his trousers for him so he wouldn’t have to buy new ones!! They had such a sweet friendship as only the residents at the Renaissance had!! I miss all of our friends there, but especially Mrs. Fricks!! May God give you peace, she was a treasure.
