Fritz was a life long friend. He and I were good friends from high school. When Fritz was working with U.S. Customs, he would spend a week each football season visiting me and my family so that he could go to McNeese games. I will miss Fritz. Dr. Lee J. and Anne Monlezun were Fritz's caretakers during his final years. God rest his soul.
