Freddy was a man of God with a strong faith. He knew without a shadow of doubt that he would be joining his Father in heaven. He said multiple times that he wouldn’t change the fact that he had cancer and that it cut his life short. Yes, he would have loved to have spent more time on Earth with his family and friends but he was able to experience the most precious gift of all; a strong relationship with God. His final thoughts to his family and friends are: please don’t cry for me.  Know that I am in a much better place. I am pain free, living in my new body in the Kingdom of God. I ask that if you do not know the Lord as your personal Savior please accept Jesus in your heart and live a life that God wants you to live, so that we will meet again one day. Keep your faith and never doubt God’s reasoning for taking me home.
