CandleSorry to hear the passing of Aunt Freida. She was one tough cookie. I remember the times that her and Uncle Harold would drive to San Antonio to visit her sister, grandma. I also remember us getting together when I would come visit with my grandparents during the summer, stay in Pella, but we all got together. I hate that I nor my Mom, Diane can make it. Please know that ya'll are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Kim (Shipton) Hoffman, Diane's Daughter.
