Aunt Freida was like my second mom, and she always had a great big heart of love for me and my family. We will miss her and uncle Henry dearly until we meet again in heaven, something we are all looking forward to.
There are not enough wonderful words to describe her and how we love her. Our love and prayers and condolences to Kerry, Greg, and Joanne and their families, etc. Uncle Henry and aunt Frieda were two irreplaceable gems in this world, and we are eternally grateful for having them in our lives. They had a wonderful positive impact on our lives and our relationship with God. I had the privilege to work for uncle Henry at Consolidated Concrete in Edmonton when I was young and also to enjoy of sharing their home life during that time. Many great stories to tell about our experiences with them. God missed them and called them home.

My mom touched many lives, I remember many Sunday afternoons when we had friends over for lunch and shared stories with people from all walks of life. Both my mom and dad were tremendously unselfish. When my mom passed, my son rattled off a multitude of unselfish acts of his grandparents and ended off by saying “if there were more people in the world like grandma and grandpa, the world would be a better place “ I think that was his way of grieving for 2 people that did so much and meant so much to him.
I will miss my mom and so will my siblings, I am so grateful to my brother Greg and his wife Heather and for my sister Joanne for the hours they spent with her especially during the COVID days when visitors were limited, they gave her the much needed companionship and comfort that she needed and I love them all the more for it.

Freda cannot possibly count the number of people whose life she touched. She lived her faith 24/7 as long as I have known her. I have so many fond memories, but one in particular is of her watching hockey and sitting right beside her Romeo (aka Henry). After so many years of marriage she’d rush to spend time with him every afternoon after they were separated. With Covid I have missed being able to visit. She will be dearly missed. Having said that I am smiling through my tears knowing she is reunited with Henry and Trevor. She is also free to move and is home. The world is a better place because of the mark she made while here and the imprint left in so many peoples lives. Mine included. My sincere condolences to her children and grandchildren.
