Words can never express the size of the hole that will be left by your passing. I have so many memories that I could share. You blessed my life more than you could ever know, you listened and followed what the Holy Spirit said. You never were afraid to speak God's truth. You often would call and just pray for me when I needed it most. I keep hearing you say "Love ya Gal" that was the last thing you said the last time you called me. Your family is always in my prayers, you all made me feel as if I were your family. I love you all and Freddie you will be missed.

Freddie was such a wonderful man and uncle. He had a smile that would light up the room. He had great jokes that would make a person laugh out loud. I will miss that smile and the jokes! Rest in peace Uncle Freddie.

I work at the front desk at Ayesh Law Offices. I've seen Freddie every couple of days for the last 2 1/2 years. He was always coming in to help Mark (my boss) with any and everything. He was such a wise soul. Every time I saw him he would share a joke or a story. He shared a lot about his family and he prided himself in the work he has done through the years. I will miss seeing his ornery smile around here.
