I’m very sad to hear of Freda’s passing. She and I worked for years together as a team at Pupil Appraisal. She was an excellent social worker and my friend. We shared cat stories and both supported HoBo Hotel. I regret that I will not be there for her funeral as I’m in Lafayette in the hospital with my mother.
