Mom, Aunt Nadine and Aunt Eva had a lot of good stories about them.. Jewell, you took such good care of her and I know that she loved you very much!

    Dear Jewell, Janet, Lendell and Marlin,
    I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. Freda was one of a kind; always a wonderful host, always positive, a joy to be around. Though I haven’t seen her in many years, I will always remember her with fondness and warmth. Jewell, you and Freda were role models for me in raising children. I thought you were the perfect parents and Janet, Lendell and Marlin are testaments to that. My thoughts and prayers are with you now and in the days to come. I truly believe our loved ones are always with us. I know you are all blessed with wonderful memories.
    My love to All, Dianne
