George, it was 2009 when you found your way into my life creating a chapter in my life that is now deeply intertwined with yours. It's now 2019 and I'm still here thinking of you. Tricia

It was my Grandmother Faith you saved that day. When she thought her own life was not worth living, you made a bold statement to the contrary, paying with your own. My family is forever in your debt. May The Lord bless and keep you.

Patrolman Froeschl,
On today, the 62nd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Galveston. You sir are a true Hero-while 500 people did nothing you responded and saved that woman's life. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

You touched me in such ways I just had to find you for a visit. As I sat by your resting place Sunday I realized you have no recognitions that YOU FELL saving another’s life. I assure you George this will change. For I am going to buy you a stone that will tell all who pass by your grave , just what a unselfish soul you truly were. I placed Yellow daisy’s hoping to brighten your spot. I have also purchased a brick from a young Eagle Scout who is trying to build a BRICK by BRICK for the Greater Galveston County Law Enforcement Officers Memorial . So as other walk the memorial path your path of greatness will always be remembered and honored. Again George thank you for allowing your story to become part of my life journey. You are a true hero , and will always be remembered as such if I have anything to do with it. Tricia . Zora Rawson

P.S. the young eagle scout is Chase Malloy from Galveston BSA Troop 123 if others would like to help this young man build his memorial walk way.
