  1. We are so sorry to hear of Elfrede\’s passing. She was such an inspiration and example of a great human spirit. She was always so kind and generous with myself and my family. The breif time we were given to spend with her will stay with us forever. We extend our deepest condolences and sympathy. Our prayers are with you and your family. Sincerely, Nora Brown and family

  2. My mom, Leona Sandbeck, was a friend of Freidels here at Timerlakes. She was an incredible woman who had survived so many medical problems. We lost touch when they moved to Lacey, but have never forgotten Dave and Freidel. Our sympathies on her passing.
