When you walk with the family in Heaven - let them know I'm still thinking of you all. You were a good second cousin

Thinking of you all in your time of sorrow. Losing a loved one isn't easy but memories are the glue that keep them with us forever.

My prayers are with you at this very difficult time. Your mom was truly a wonderful person and I loved hanging out with her at your family home. Rest peacefully Irene.

To all the Fritz children. I want to express my sincere sadness to you with the loss of your mom. I will always remember the days out on the farm and all the great chicken dinners that I shared with your family. She was a hard working mom that provided a great environment for all of you to grow up in. Your mom and dad may have been a little stern now and then but they knew it was best way to prepare you all for the future. Take care and always remember the good times you had with your parents who are now together once again.
