To Sam and Stan and their families, Micky and I wish to offer our most sincere condolences in the death of our cousin and very dear friend, Fritz. We had a lot of fun growing up - with his visits to Woodleaf and my visits to Elon. We worked together in the Accounting Department of Burlington Industries in Greensboro for several years before they transferred me to out in the field at Cramerton and Burlington. I wish now we could have been closer in latter years but our advancing years seemed to give us less time to visit, it seems.

We wanted to attend the visitation at Stan's tonight but, at 85, I try not to drive at night. Nevertheless, our thoughts were with you and your families- and still are. Your Dad was a good man and we know all of you will miss him a lot.

Most Sincerely,

Charlie and Micky Click

We are so sorry to hear of Fritz death. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. I wish we could see all the family, but I just had surgery on Jan. 21 to correct hip replacement that was done 2 years ago. Bill has a bad cold and cough. Know that the Wetmore Family will be thinking of all of you during this time, and remembering all the good times we had growing up.
