To the Family: I was saddened to hear of Freddy's passing. I admired Freddy from the first time we played basketball against each other. He was a good player but more so as a friend. I grew up next door to Lola and she was a cheer leader and she rode home with me, being able to drop her off at home. Our prayers are with the family!!!!
Mr. Edwards will be missed and Becky and I extend our sympathy and prayers to the family. One more of the wonderful parents we were blessed to grow up with in Meadow Park.
So sorry for your loss. I am a cousin of Freddie but haven't seen him in several years. Corene was a very special person and she was a good mother. GOD BLESS THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
