  1. Tanya... She did come by often. She took you to the store when you couldn't go out. She supportedso many veterans.. She supported you in so many ways. That's because she loved helping people.  I'm glad she helped you. I raised her to hep those in need. She did that

There is so much to this tragity. There is so much that will be said. I will when I'm ready. I know the rest of this beautiful girls life. I will do an obituary and celebration of her life. The 2 people that responded have no clue. Me...her mom and best friend...i know. Right now we are in pain and need our space. Thank you all for your comfort. Just not ready yet.

This is from Tanya Huntley: "a song dedicated to "Freedie Leigh" by Lionel Richie called, "Goodbye." (the version for a friend)

When I first met Freedom she was 7 years old. We met at a 12 step program. Nobody knew that for the last 11 years Freedom would come by my home for support and also for any needs that she and her children had, at the time. I was fully committed to her and the children in many ways, all these years. Freedom will remain in my heart. This song is what she meant to me.............."Sail on Freedie-Leigh."

so sorry to learn this news. I remember Freedom as an innovative jeweler with great potential working at, "By George."
