"Officer Hosea Freeman"
Freeman was a loving and kind hearted friend whom I had the pleasure of knowing for 13 years here at FCI Edgefield. He will be truly missed, but never forgotten. To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die. I would like to leave this quote to the family : "May the blessings of love be upon you, May its peace abide with you, May its essence illuminate your heart, Now and forever more.... Sufi Blessing
