My name is Carol (Froehlich) Friedrichs. I’m Dr. Rick’s wife and I want to share a little of our many blessings with you. Dr. Rick and I have been married since 1979 and are blessed with two boys and a girl as well as one granddaughter. Our oldest son, Scott, and his wife, Kinsey, along with Harper, our granddaughter, and Gunner, our grandson, live here in Tomball, as does our daughter, Elaine, and her husband, Jake. Our son, Brent, and his wife, Lauren, along with our granddaughter, Evelyn, live in Edna, Texas, on the Lavaca Rio Ranch.
Our roots as well as our faith grow deep here. We met at the same church my parents were married in and the one I was raised in here in the Heights. It also is the church Rick and I were married in, and the pastor at our wedding was Dr. Rick’s own father, Pastor Roland Friedrichs. My grandparents were E.P. and Emma (Scherer) Kleb and A.J. and Alma (Seidel) Froehlich, all of whom were from the Tomball, Klein, and Rosehill area. I am the bookkeeper for the practice amongst many other duties behind the scenes, and I enjoy so much being active in the practice in the small capacity I am and getting to see and meet and connect with so many of our wonderful patients. I feel very honored to live and work here in Tomball as my grandparents before me did.
