    For such a wonderful and special family that you all are to me, I send much love and prayers to some of the most precious people on earth to me. Grandama Freeman was a very special lady to me, even though I did not know her for a long time. We spent some precious hours together–just she and I, and I will treasure them the rest of my life. Her giant godly influence will carry on for generations to come. I know that she touched many lives even aside from her family, and God will see to it that her legacy in Him will live on in each of these lives. What a wonderful testimony. The best thing is that one day we will see her again in Heaven, because of the sacrifice of Jesus, and the promise of the salvation He gave to us all. God Bless You each one. I love you in Jesus.

    There is always a certain amount of sadness that we have when our loved ones make their flight from this earth to their heavenly home. I know you all are experiencing this now, but there is such joy and peace in knowing that she has finally made it. I count it one of my greatest pleasures to have known this mighty woman of faith. It was a blessing to see her enjoying her trip, even down to the final hours. Her legacy lives on!! You (Curtis family) made her proud!! Thanks for taking such good care of her!
    Love,
    The Blanton’s

    Jim, Brenda, & Erica,

    Thinking and praying for you all during this difficult time. Remembering Mom Freeman’s smile and hugs. Remembering Jim talk about his childhood, Mom Freeman’s biscuits & water gravy, learning to read by reading the Bible and that you would rather have a spanking than a “talking to.” I know you have many fond memories of this very special lady. Cherished memories.

    We love you all!

    Sincerest sympathies,

    Marty, Brigitte & J.R.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with your family during this time. What a glorious homecoming it will be – Sis Freeman was such a blessing every time we seen her, enjoy your family so much. What a legacy she and Bro Freeman left us. You could just tell she was loved to the very end of her journey here on earth – and she loved her family too. Sorry we could not make the service but our thought were with you all day. Love and prayers to all.
