I worked at the Grand Canyon with Frieda in the early 80s. She was on my mind today as I was going through old photos and reminiscing about those days. One day it snowed real hard and the stores at the canyon closed, so we, having a day off, put tire chains on her car and she drove us to Cameron for a Navajo Taco. We had a lot of good visits, but that one was the most memorable. My email address is: remilio@gmail.com
If friend or family would like the beautiful photos, I'd be happy to share.

MS CARSON WAS THE BEST BUS DRIVER MNGUS EVER HAD. SHE MADE US WALK FROM THE BOTTOM OF JEROME TO THE TOP WHEN THE ROADS WERE ICY. WE GOT HER BACK, THE SAME CURVE SHE DROPPED US OFF AT WE ALL JUMPED TO THE RIGHT HAND SIDE AND YELLED "LEAN' THE BUS WOULD TIP AND MS CARSON WOULD YELL...,BUT SHE NEVER CUSSED.
I HOLD FOND MEMORIES OF HER AND ALL THE
YEARS OF SEEING HER FRIENDLY FACE EVERY MORNING. BLESS HER SOUL AND MUCH CONDOLENCES TO HER FAMILY. BILL G.
