My sweet mother-in-law. Oh how I will miss you. I will miss our shopping days and getting our hair done together every week. I will miss lunches with you and even our Walmart days. I was lucky to know you and work with you at Riverside, before I was even with Richard. I knew then you were a special lady. I was so lucky to have you as my Mother-in-law. You will always be in my heart. I love you. Shelby

Don and I are so saddened by the passing of aunt June. I consider myself lucky to have met such a precious lady. Although we didn't get to visit often, we have sweet memories of those times spent with her. Our prayers are with you all and we wish we could be there with you.

June Freeman was, honestly, one of the greatest examples of what a woman of God should be. From the moment my mom married her son, Richard, she loved my sister and I and our children. She fulfilled a void my mom had since her mother's passing in 87 and I'm very thankful for the time the two of them spent together. My prayers are with her sons and their spouses and children and also her sister's, nieces and nephews. You were all lucky to have this angel as your Mother, Mother-in-law, sister, aunt and grandmother. Rest in peace sweet June.

Amazing people are those who have a love that is contagious. It was a great pleasure meeting Mrs. June Freeman and knowing her, if only for a short time. God be with you all, her family she temporarily left behind.

Heaven has received a beautiful angel. Rest In Peace Meme! You fought a courageous battle. I hope that I can be half of the woman, wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, aunt and friend that you were. I am proud to say that you are my grandmother. You will forever be in our hearts.

Love Always,
