Aquilla was such a loving and kind soul! We shared many hours talking as we received our treatments at the Iredell Infusion Center. Aquilla and I became fast friends although I felt as if I had known her for many years. Her family was so dedicated to this faithful woman of God. It was a great honor and privilege to know her. She was always smiling and brought great joy to me and so many even in the last years of her life.

Lord we thank you for the life Mrs Freeman was given. She was truly a special angel sent by God. I enjoyed my laughs and conversations about pocketbooks. I will still blow my horn at ya Ms Aquilla on my way home.
