Fredda was a dear friend from way back, like the rest of the Tinney family, and we will certainly miss her. But, we all take comfort in knowing that she was a real Christian and is now with her Lord and Savior. She is not hurting anymore; she is enjoying the glories of Heaven. May we all examine ourselves to determine if we also have this same "lively hope" as described by the Apostle Paul. May God continue to bless and strengthen you all, Aubrey Jones

Fredda was a sister in Christ, a dear friend and will be missed by all. I always enjoyed our conversations and her smile. I know that she is in Heaven and reunited with her savior and loved ones. I know there is sadness and a void left in your lives but one day you will see her again.
