How I loved Mrs.Freeman. There will be many children in heaven because of her. She was one of my biggest influencers in Child Evangelism. I can still see her teaching Bible stories to those little children. I’m sure many were waiting on her at the gates of heaven including her sweet mother. Your family is blessed to have her as a mother and grandmother and to have the privilege of seeing her again.

I always looked forward to Mrs. Freeman coming each week with a Bible story and songs when I was in elementary school. What a blessing she was! I now sing some of those songs to my grandbabies. What a blessing to know she is with her Lord and Savior. Prayers for you all as I know she will be missed.
