Memories about Ralph FreudenbergEdit

  • Nora Freudenberg Terwilliger writes on Thursday, November 15, 2007: I remember my grandfather, my grandmother died before I was born which was October 11, 1963. So she must of died months before I was born. I loved my Poppie he would always hide a buck around the house for me. And I would have fun trying to find it. I loved his house it was really nice and the back yard was so pretty. He loved taking care of his flowers & yard. It was always fun to go to poppies house. My dad took after his dad, he too loved to take care of his place.
