  1. Dear Aunt Freda,

    No words can begin to explain how much you have meant to me and my family. You were the rock, the pillar that we all loved and adored. I will miss all of your wonderful stories, your advice and your sincere concern for myself and my family. I am so thankful for the years that we had together and will cherish every memory.

    Your loving nephew
    Ronnie
