Wow! You could not ask for a better father-in-law than Fritz. After 37 years in the family and never a cross word or heated argument. A grandfather like no other, a wit that removes any stress of life through humor. We know his heavenly place secured by Christ is NOW his joy. It has been my privilege to share life married to his first born daughter, Becky, and the sweetest mother-in-law who cared for Fred through his health issues for years. A tribute to the life of a truth teller flavored with humorous gist and intoxicating laughter. Soli Dei Gloria!

Becky - I know it has been years Western-Southern since we've seen each other, but I've wondered about you through the years; and Jenny Yarger. There for awhile I caught up with Jenny but don't know her whereabouts now. Just wanted to extend my condolences for your father's passing. I lost my husband 9 months ago and I'm still reeling. You've got a good-sized family and I know the love and support is there for you and yours. Just wanted to say hello and wish you well.

Dear Becky - Jim and I wish to extend our condolences to you and your family. You'll be in our thoughts and prayers. I did not know that your brother is deceased. We were in the same class, Simpson and Mansfield Senior. Our heartfelt sympathy.
Marlene Neal left a message on March 10, 2010:
Dear Carlene & Family, Our deepest sympathies to your entire family. As you know we loved Fred dearly. We always looked forward to his wonderful sense of humor, great laugh and loving spirit. He sure knew how to make you feel welcomed. You & Fred were the first family at OCF to invite us to lunch and always made us feel so much like we were family. Even though we are thankful that he is home with the Lord and free from the cares of this life, he will be greatly missed. I will especially miss his hugs and his trying to speak to me in Romanian. : Our love and prayers, Matt & Marlene Neal

Will miss seeing Fred at Chase Bank. He was a very kind man and warmly called me "Old Rose". Always brought a smile and a kind word with him. My condolences to all of you for your loss.
