Subject: Deborah Round Freng obituary, 9/12/1951 - 7/30/2022

 

Hello to family and friends,

 

My dear wife Deborah Round Freng died in front of me at 9:30am this morning.

The funeral directors removed her body a few minutes ago.  Kris and I witnessed it.

 

I have assembled a big list of all the people to notify, on the BCC line.

 

I will miss her terribly.

She says she will haunt me, in a good way:

  • Live in a house full of her stuff
  • Surrounded by her garden to maintain

 

We were married 21 years, but celebrated 42 wedding anniversaries.

In fall 2015 she was diagnosed with Stage 3C ovarian cancer.

Through 5 rounds of infusion chemotherapy and 2 rounds of chemo pills, she made it to May 2022.

The chemo stopped working.  I took her to an ER 3 times in June, to drain fluids.

She entered home hospice 4 weeks ago.

 

Our son Kris Freng visited daily in the last few weeks.

Our daughter-in-law Katrina Freng (CC line) will be arranging the memorial service, not yet scheduled.

 

I have to clean up, grieve, and live on without her.

The hospice book has a long checklist for the survivors; no time to rest yet.

 

My suggestion: cherish the people you live with and love NOW, while you can.

 

Yours,

Sorry to hear this.

I love your global view, "Charish the people you live with and love them now, while you can".

Praying strength for you and your family.
