I will miss you now and forever Uncle Freddy. I’m thinking back on all the memories from when I was a little girl and the things you used to do with me and John and Margaret and all of my cousins, you will greatly be missed and always be loved.
Sending Thoughts and Prayers for Shirley, Scoot, Susie, Hunter & Holi. My heart is just breaking for the pain you are going through. We will miss his cute smile and that dry sense of humor. Freddie wasn’t a big talker, but when he did it was always about his family, how he loved his grandchildren, loved meeting them after school, sports and everything they were involved in. Shirley & Freddie raised one fine son Scoot . He has been thur so much sickness with his Dad, and been right there for Shirley through it all . Let’s not forget Susie which is taking care of the home front & supporting Scoot. God got one special angel today, we know Freddie has suffered so much, that there wil l be no more pain. I Pray with time the family can find peace. I will truly miss FREDDIE and may he Rest in Peace. Love to the entire family . DARLENE MORRIS
I am writing this from George Shipp.
To the family of Freddy Gillespie, I am sorry for your loss, remember he will always be with you in your heart and mind
There are just not enough words to express how sorry I am for your loss. Freddie and I were friends for almost 60 years. So I know first hand how much he loved Shirley, Scoot, Susie and his grandchildren. Though he has passed his memories will stay with us forever. My prayers are with the family though this difficult time.
