Not sure what to say?

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. It was an honor to know Deacon O'Neal or Mr. Freddie as I referred to him while working at Eisenhower Army Medical Center. He was loved by all who knew him. I learned so much as I had the privilege to worship with him. He was funny, loving and made everyone feel special. I will also miss the fun and fellowshipping at the his bowling outreach event. Min O'Neal and family my prayers are with you for strength, comfort and healing today...

My sincere thoughts and prayers are with the Oneal family during this dark hour. I pray that the peace of God abide and strengthen you in the days ahead.
