So sorry to hear about Frieda but what a life fully lived. Her mortal body, with all of its problems, is now replaced with a heavenly one. Her mortal body may be gone, but our memories of her and Gordon will always remain. She is now back with him. I had known both of them for years and considered them friends. Dr. John and Betty Ann McKenzie
