  3. Fretta was not only my mother-in-law for fifty years, but she was also, and more importantly, a sister in Christ. I can only feel joy that she is now rid of this world’s pains and sorrows, and will be eternally with our Father in heaven, and our Saviour Jesus! We will see you at the Rapture, Fretta!

  4. I’m at a loss for words. My heart breaks for all the friends and loved ones. Fretta was such a beautiful, generous, loving spirit. She was definitely one of a kind and will be greatly missed. It gives me comfort to know that she is with loved ones and her Maker. Heaven has gained a truly special angel. Praying for peace and comfort.

    • Tammy, this is Thelma. Your mother was truly one of the most beautiful angels GOD ever shared on earth. My memories of her have always stayed in my heart. Sundays at church, Sunday suppers, the gardens and her sweet voice singing church hymns. I believe this lovely lady is leading choirs in heaven. Her influence has always stayed with me. My prayers and love with you and your family.

  7. God has. Chosen a new rose for his garden.may the sunshine of love surrond you as your favorite butterflies flitters around with all the loved ones waiting for all of us to join you and Uncle Troy in God’s Heavenly place he has prepared for us.
