    Very sorry to hear of Freida’s passing. My mother Gwen Burns would pick her up each year and they would go together to pay their property taxes. That was their annual trip. My Aunt Bertie Burns was her sister.

    I remember your mother from Trinity. She was always willing to help in anyway she could. She was so proud of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was grateful for all your help too. I have been away from Frankfort for 2 years and always thought of her when I passed her cute little house! So sorry for your loss. Praying for you in the difficult days ahead!
