I will NEVER forget Brother Fritz him and Sister Fritz always greeted me when I started attending Brother Cagles church in junior high I went to church with him off and on for years and anytime I needed prayer and was up at that alter they prayed with me. Anytime I would see them in public he would always be glad to see you and never forgot to mention the Lord! Until we meet again what a wonderful man!

Dear Sister Fritz, and family, Our deepest sympathy to you on the passing of your husband, Dad and Grandpa. We enjoyed the many photos you posted - He had so much to be proud of.

It was always good to run into the two of you at the Darke County fair. We will miss his big smile and warm handshake. Remembering also, times of worshipping together years ago in the same church. May each one of you be comforted with sweet memories, and knowing he now enjoys seeing Jesus, face to face. We love you.

I am so sorry for your loss and my prayers will continue for all who loved him. I remember being at their home with the youth group and he teased me a bit by telling me there was a mouse near me. It made me scream, jump and cry..hahahahahaha. He felt so bad, but once my crying stopped, I laughed about it with him. He was always so nice to our family and always made us feel welcome. Sis. Fritz, I am sorry for the loss your of your husband. I cannot imagine losing mine, although I have become verrry close. I have told many people about the two of you and your family over the years. Everyone should have a Bro & Sis Fritz & Family in their lives. Much love, prayers and thoughts. Tracy Ruiz (daughter of Sis Linda Rollins)
