The Hochstetlers!

I decided not to overload my blog with photos, of all the many friends we have around the world!  We cherish all our friendships!!

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. Marcel Proust

Wikipedia: Frida (with variants Freda, Freedia, Frieda and Freida) is a feminine given name. In Scandinavian countries, it derives from the Old Norse name Fríða, meaning“beautiful, beloved”. In central and eastern Europe, Frida is a short form of compound names containing the Germanic element fried meaning “peace”.

I always thought my aunt was beautiful and beloved, and with her there was always peace.  I remember attending her wedding when I was 10 years old. Special memories! We always had a lot of fun together.  She liked to tease me! They say, that means she liked me a lot! A special memory was when we traveled together after Thanksgiving of 2015, to see her son’s family in New York, which included seeing a newborn grandchild!

Frieda, rest in peace!
