Freddie, although you grew up with Lawrence, you were one of the first people I met when we moved to Bluefield. We were saddened by the news of your passing. Rest in peace and may God strengthen and comfort your family during this difficult time

Kanika and Freddie's family. I am so sorry for your loss. I pray God Almighty will give you His strength and peace in this hour of your loss. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. May this scripture provide you with comfort. Love you always Kanika. Freddie is saying hi to Aunt Velma now.
