    I knew Freeman for many years when he worked at Alliance Data. He was hoot and such a character. We all loved him. God broke the mold when he was made. My sympathies go to his family. I know he will be deeply missed. I thank God for the memories and the chance to have been blessed to have known him.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Words can’t even begin to explain the difference Freeman made in every life he touched. Saying goodbye today is going to be one of the hardest things we ever have to do & I pray God gives us strength & comfort in this difficult time. We rejoice in his travel home, where he no longer suffers from earthly pain, inside or out. We cherish the memories we have & the time God allowed His angel to be with us here on earth & fully understand why He would want him back. Freeman was truly one of a kind & will be forever missed. All family & friends will continue to be in my prayers.
