    Dear family of Frieda,
    I was so sorry to hear of Frieda’s passing.
    Frieda was the first person I met when I joined the gym, she was so friendly and welcoming. She was such an inspiration for everyone at the gym and admired by all who knew her.
    Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss.

    Dearest Sylvia,Nora & Families

    Please accept our heartfelt condolence with the recent loss of your beloved Mother. I so remember the years we spent as youngsters .. us on Cawston Ave.. you on Coronation Ave. The many hours of sharing time with you ‘n your parents. I truly believed back then.. that your mom was a heroine …a true survivor… I am grateful that I was fortunate enough to even meet her…

    You are both in my heart…
