    What a legacy dear Frieda has left behind for her family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time as you grieve her leaving but rejoice with her reunion in heaven. She was such a dear lady and an encouragement to all. Her smile and advice was always so welcoming. Blessings!

  • Margaret McLellan says:

    Dear Walter, Rose and Family,
    I just want to express my sympathy in the passing of Frieda. We sat beside her the first time we attended Mission Creek Alliance Church about 26 years ago. She was very friendly and welcoming to us. I know she has left a wonderful heritage–everyone speaks highly of her!
    I am sorry I was unable to attend the service today.
    With love
    Margaret McLellan
