I met my dear friend, Deloris, in the 1980’s while we worked together. We became fast friends and shared many laughs and fun times: Girls Night Out dinners, holding garage sales, girls trips, playing cards and a cruise. I truly missed her after she moved to Kingwood. I’ll never forget the day that my phone rang and the Caller ID said Deloris Fitz. I was shocked to hear from her. She said she was looking for her cousin’s number and saw my name and decided to call me. I’m so grateful that she did. She was having a good day. Now, all of her days are good.

Fritz was my second mom for many years. I spent many a day and night with BREACK and Randy . She was a very intelligent and strong woman and not just because she had to raise those two hoodlums. I will miss her and will,and have,missed her skillet fried potatoes and onions. Best I’ve ever had. God bless you and bless the whole Fritz family. Todd and Kelly Nichols.

Deloris and I first met when we both lived at Montclair Estates and instantly became friends. She and I had a lot in common, and we had such good times together whether it was trips to Tunica and Shreveport, or just going to Applebee's for our favorite French onion soup. We joined First Baptist Church at the same time and enjoyed our Covenant Sunday School Class. We were unable to continue our adventures together the last couple of years, but stayed in contact by phone and cards. My children and grandchildren loved her as well. I will miss you my buddy and will treasure the memories. Love & Hugs - Nell.

My aunt Fritzy, you were so special to me. You gave me words of wisdom as I went through high school playing basketball and on to college. Next to Mimi you were my greatest supporter. Front row at my basketball games and buying me my first car when I was 18. You treated me like your own grand daughter and although I didn't get to say good bye to you, I hope you know you will always have a special place in my heart. Please give Mimi, Papa and my mom big hugs and kisses. I love you Fritzy.

I will miss you everyday. There was such an age difference between us. I remember the way you, Helen and Wanda took care of me when I was little. By the time I was 8 years old you were all married and gone. It wasn't until many years later that we became close again. And I am very grateful for that.
The times when you and Helen would go to Russell Stover and then come by our house with a trunk full of chocolate. And when we would take you and Helen to Four Winds Steakhouse, what fun. And the time the three of us went to Shreveport to the casinos for the weekend.
The cruise you and I went on. We couldn't talk Helen into going with us. We had a blast. It was over Halloween and we dressed up. You were a princess and I was a witch (you thought our costumes were spot on). You won like crazy in the ships casino and I kept spending your winnings in the slots. We had so much fun.
I loved it when Jim would pick you up on Fridays and you would spend the weekend with us. We would spend hours talking and "Eating". Especially you and Jim, you would talk endlessly.
And all the dinners and parties at Suzanne & Bart's house. You always loved his barbecue.
Your biggest pride and joy were Randy & Breack. And your sunshine was Kaitlyn & Lindsey. Then God gave you a bright star with a great grand child, Brantley.
I have so many memories to hang on to and I am grateful for that. I will always remember the way you ended our phone calls with "I love you darling".
Give mom and dad, Wanda, Helen & Ed a big hug for me.
Love you too.
