Freddie helped me years ago by hypnotizing me back to previous lives at a time of personal trauma. I helped me deal with inappropriate emotions and change my life’s path. She was a dear and kind soul who was quite unappreciated in Flint Michigan by most.
Dr. Bartz was one of my favorite professors at UM-Flint. Her science-fiction courses were amazing as were her occasional cocktail parties featuring luminaries from the sci-fi community as honored guests.
