“and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”
— Revelation 21:4 (NASB)
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
— Matthew 11:28-29 (NASB)
Freda and Jimbo met long before many of us came to know them as the fun-loving couple that always welcomed new Miata Enthusiasts into the Bluebonnet Miata Club. Theirs is a story like many, they met through work and after several attempts, Jimbo was able to entice Freda to go out on a date. The rest is history. Freda liked to laugh, drink wine and as Jimbo’s passenger, spent a lot of time screaming, “Ooooiiiiyyyy!” Courageous enough to sky dive, Freda was the Ying to Jimbo’s Yang, always with recollections of funny stories or jokes she’d heard. Beside the fun loving nature many of us knew, Freda was an amazing person, often caring for others. On frequent trips to the coast, she’d pack more than enough food, with all the needed ingredients and spices to whip up great meals calling on favorite recipes from memory. She’d be up preparing food and cleaning up the kitchen before anyone knew what was happening. Freda was up for anything! We will miss her smile, her laughter and her presence.
