    Condolences to the family. Frieda and I go way back to Champion Jr. High School. She always had a bubbly personality. Heaven has gained another angle. Spread your wings my friend. You will truly be missed. Family, weeping may endureth for a night but joy cometh in the morning.

    I send my condolences to O’Neal and the family of Frieda Ivory Jones. Frieda was a member of the East High School Girls, a group of women who gathered together for dinner quarterly for over 25 years. She often took pictures for the group. She especially enjoyed our Garden Parties and Christmas Gatherings. Frieda was a sincere and loving person who shared her sense of humor with us all. She loved her dogs dearly. Family and friends were important to her. Frieda was a virtuous woman of God. She will be dearly missed.
