Remembering Friends

Freddaflower Memorial & Appreciation Fund

The pain of losing them is the price we pay for the privilege of knowing them and sharing their lives. . . . – Vicky Barbee

We thank those people who have contributed to our work with recent donations In Loving Memory and in Honor and Appreciation of the following beloved family members and friends:

  • In memory of Grapes, beloved and deeply missed by the Cox family. – Ellen & Bob Ravens-Seger
  • In honor of Nero, Fredericka, Julie, Nathaniel, Leonard, and Bertha, remembered forever and sadly missed. – Paul Deane
  • “Topie,” as my Sophie was so tenderly called, was the beebopinest hen in the barnyard (so to speak). This particular Sunday, as she sat prettily in a basket of straw to begin her little brown egg-laying ritual, she bowed her head and died quietly. Sophie was a Bantam Rosecomb Wyandotte, known for her gaiety of chatter as she ran down the hallway ahead of the gang to be the first to claim the yellow pillow for a peaceful night’s rest. Peacefully she sleeps now and is remembered forever with love under Granny’s Sacred Japanese Red Maple with her dear three sisters – Debbie Alekna
  • My gift is in honor of All God’s Creatures. – Brien Comerford
