    I worked with Freida at UH until her retirement. She was every bit a lady and went about her work quietly and efficiently which made her a resident favorite. She loved her work and instilled,that sense of pride in being a caregiver into her daughters. Rest peacefully Freida.

    Chris and the entire Lovely family, I’m so sorry for your loss of your mother. She was a great lady and I remember her well from being around the neighborhood when we were younger. If the Lord ever sent Angels from heaven, then Freida was one of the Angels. This lovely lady always had a big smile on her face and treated all the youngsters in the neighborhood like they were her own. May you RIP Mrs. Lovely and God Bless a lovely lady.
