    To the family,, I want to say that Ms Freda was an amazing woman. I knew her from NCO and she always had a kind word for you or the truth. Which ever you needed to hear. My heart is heavy knowing that she is gone. But I know that she is now in paradise and has no more worries of pain or struggle. My family will most definitely keep your family in my prayers.

    I was so sorry to hear about Freda's passing.  My condolences to her family and May God continually watch over you, and give you the strength to get through this.  I have known Freda since I started working at the Newark Board of Education in February 1989.  She was a wonderful person to work with and she loved reading her books.  She will be missed.

    Ms. Freda... I'm going to miss the sound of the jingle jangle that rang through the building as you walked down the hall. You taught me that a piece of chocolate and a good book could get you through almost anything. Thank you for sharing your friendship, your time, and your heart. Peace be the journey.

    My sincere sympathy goes out to The Atkins and Jones Family. I met Freda at NCO/APAC a couple of years ago. She was a kind person and a joy to work with. Our APAC family chain has been broken. She will be missed dearly.   "Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted." Matthew 5:4 (KJV)

    I was really sorry to hear of your loss.  I've only known Freda for a short time but I found her to be a loving person.  We shared in a few struggles at NCO/APAC, God brought us through and now she's at peace.  She will be greatly missed and I pray Gods Blessings on her family.  Through His Love, Grace and Mercy, He will help you through this time of sorrow.
