Millie and family, my heart broke when I heard of Fritz's passing! I am so very sorry for your loss!
I saw Fritz at the weddings of Jessica and of Lee. He danced with me at each wedding! Fritz was such a good dancer.
Good memories! Love, Wendy

Frannie has always held a special place in my heart. Growing up with out a Mom I held special family members close to my heart. Two of them were Millie and Frannie. When I first got married they were the first to give me a Christmas decoration to use in my house, I was married on December 14th I still have the Mr. and Mrs. Claus and will always think of them when I put them out. Also, when I had my first child Millie and Frannie were waiting in the waiting room until I delivered it was a long night- even my first grandson there they were both asleep, both of them in the waiting room! That's Family! He would call my husband, Don, "Big Guy" and love to talk with him. My mother was their first born's godmother, she didn't have much time with Tony, but I know she looks down on him from time to time. They are together right now now watching everything and everybody at this funeral! May God's arms hold you Fritz and thank you!
Love Trisha and Don

I remember Fritz. When I was little and use to hang out with my big cousins Fritz was there. I remember Fritz remember after my mother died the whole family would come over to make us feel a part of things. I remember Fritz. He was the only one that enjoyed my dad's 8mm home movies. He would watch and say ,"I'm going to do that some day. Well he got himself a trailer and we even all went camping together a few times. I REMEMBER FRITZ. You will always be in our hearts. Uncle Bill and Sandy.

Millie, so sorry for your loss. Frannie was such a great guy. Sorry I didn't get to know him longer. I would walk up to him and say Hi Frannie I am Anne Marie, Dotties daughter. He would say I know who you are. Telling me by his voice that I didn't need to tell him all that Frannie knew from my voice.
God bless you Millie and may Frannie now rest peacefully in the arms of Jesus.

Millie

So sorry to hear of your husband's death. I know you had a wonderful life together and you will miss him terribly. One day at a time is all anyone can do for now. Call me whenever.

So sad to hear about Fritz's passing. It made my boys sad also. We shared memories of Fritz, like how he recorded pay per view events of wrestling for the boys. He took a video of me and Sissy out front one Easter dancing on the sidewalk. He was a great person who did anything he could for anyone in need. He was a great carpenter too.
