Memories Timeline


  1. I spent nearly a year with uncle Freeman, caring for him in his home, during which he shared many stories of his life. I have many happy memories of going up town to the pop station and later to the junction. My first trip to a Dairy Queen was with mom and Freeman on the way home from Iowa City in 1975, in his green nova.

  2. Childhood memories with Uncle Freeman, walking to the ‘Pop Station’ for an ice cold pop, strawberry ice cream, movies in West Union, BB guns, walking down the lane to bring the cows back to be milked.

  3. My sympathy to the family of Freeman. Know of my thoughts and prayers for you at your time of loss. Becky (Adams) Searcy
