Memories Timeline


  1. We are so deeply sorry about Frieda. We always enjoyed spending time with her when she would come to visit PA, particularly at New Year's when we would go to dinner and then go back to Liz's house for dessert with Frieda's amazing homemade Tiramisu. What a wonderful, kind, loving mother she was and she was so fortunate to have two amazing daughters, a wonderful son-in-law and three beautiful grandkids. May memories of her keep you all comforted in this very sad time. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. Claudia and Liz,
    We share your sorrow with love and friendship.
    Your mom was very special, she was loved by everyone.
    She will never be forgotten.
    May the many wonderful memories with her give you peace and comfort.

    Dalal and Frans
