I was so sorry to hear that Freda Chetwood Martin had passed away. She was my cousin by marriage, having married Mack Chetwood. I remember her when I was a kid growing up at Halfway. She and Mack loved hunting with their horses. I remember Verlin and Adila, but we were all very young.
My thoughts are with all her loved ones.
