  • Dear Freidel & Williams Family,

    God’s mercy and comfort be with you now and always, Bryan and Theresa Anderson with Isaac and Lily

  • Dear Georgia and the entire Freidel family,
    I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of Denny. I started my career at 3M 34 years ago and Denny was assigned as my engineering mentor. Denny was the most wonderful mentor to me, teaching me how to manage a project, secure funding, and how to navigate the ins and outs of the design process. Above all, Denny was open, honest and kind. I was just 21 when I started and new to the Twin Cities as well, so he invited me to join him, Georgia and his family at his home in Prescott for the 4th of July parade, festivities and a meal. I have always been grateful for Denny’s professional advice and friendship. If he was so kind and special to me, I can only imagine how special he was to his family. I wish the Freidel family my deepest sympathy and peace. God Bless! Paula Tuebo Munkelwitz
