    There is no loss quite like the loss of a mother. Freddie has been a member of my family since my brother Karl brought home this little woman with the big hair named Kathie and took her as his wife. I am honored to have known the Rooks and my heart goes out to each and every one of the children and the rest of the family. I grieve with you at this time. Kathie, you are my ‘sister’ and I love you so much. You know that heaven just opened up and welcomed her home. God bless you and comfort you all!
