  4. Brenda I am so sorry to hear about Freddie. i knew he had been sick. The last time I saw y’all was at Sam’s that was a minute ago. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. Thinking of you and your family. Linda Lewis Victory Baptist

  5. It is my honor to have met his daughters at the flower shop today. The moment Angela started telling me about her daddy, I immediately knew Chief Manning. His girls found a heart with the word “love” as they left the store, and they knew it was from their “Deddie”.
    The service will be in “honor’ of his great service to this commiunity, even though he did not any fanfare. I salute you sir, for you are loved and respected by so many. Chief Manning and my husband, BTN Gary C Thigpen, CCFD, met when he was just a rookie with Augusta Richmond CountyFire Department, back in the day.

    Mentorship of the young, eager, firefighters, is a gift that Chief Manning did not take lightly. His legacy will be to every fire fighter that learned under his watch and comes home to their families after every shift.

    Rest in Peace. Your work on earth is done.

  7. Brenda and family. May the Lord give you peace and comfort as only He can give. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

  8. Oh my goodness the times we had growing up on Perkins street. The mischief we were involved in. Freddie was one of my best friends growing up, he stayed in touch during my years in the Marine Corps and talked with my mother frequently while I was in Vietnam. He served our community with distinction as an EMT and later as a Battalion Chief with the Augusta Fire Department. I am so glad that Freddie and I were friends over the years. He recently attended a Martha Lester Grammar School reunion. We sure had a grand time recalling those days in the :mill village.” I know he will be sorely missed by his family and many friends. He is at peace now safely in the arsm of the Lord Jesus that he loved and served so faithfully. Well done Freddie.

  9. What a legacy Freddie left for his family! Our prayers are with you, Brenda. I can just imagine the reunion meeting between Preacher Larry and Freddie.

  10. Dear Joyce, Brenda and Family:
    So sorry we were unable to attend services for Freddie. And So heartbroken to lose the second member of our family neighborhood on Perkins Street where our entire neighbor was family by heart .. not blood.
    Heaven gained a good loving man. R.I.P. Freddie as you fought a hard fight. Grief is a lifelong sentence for those left behind so please know we are praying for God to wrap his arms around you and give you peace, hugs and strength.
    With love,
