    My heart was broken to hear the news of the loss of sweet Freda. We became friends when her second child and my first were born and we shared the same hospital room . She was a big help to me. She was a genuine person and was loved by so many. My thoughts and prayers are with you Jamie, Christi, and Kim.

    Dear Frazor family, I’m so sorry for your loss. I am a neighbor who will never forget finding Miss Freda working in my kitchen right after we had been hit by a tornado. By the time I got home that day, she was with a whole crew of people trying to salvage what they could. Others of your family were probably with her, and I thank you so much for your help. Miss Freda was a sweet lady that I first met when my children were at Beech Elementary, and was glad to later become a neighbor. My deepest sympathy to your family.
