MJ, Brenda and Sandy,
We are so sad to hear about Fritz. Our thoughts and prayers go out for all of you. Somehow Northmont doesn’t seem quite the same without the friendly neighbors that were once a big part of it. However, there will always be good memories each time we pass the home at the corner of Ormont and Northmont Boulevard.
Rest in peace, Fritz.

Uncle Fritz was always full of light and laughter at Nana Gaul's Christmas parties!! I will always remember him in such a way. Please know Ronnie and I are thinking of you and will continue to think of you during this difficult time.

" Death leaves a heartache no one can heal and love leaves a memory no one can steal." Time heals the pain you are feeling and leaves you with memories of cherished times together.

Love,
Ron & Lexy Klumpp

To the Gaul, Seigfried and Alvisi families;
We hope that all the wonderful memories of Fritz that each of you hold near and dear will help you as you endure the difficulty of living without him.

MJ: You and Fritz showed the world how wonderful a loving relationship can be and lived it everyday. I cherished the time that I got to spend with the two of you. Thanks for treating us and our family like family members too.

Sandy and Brenda, Thank you for posting all those wonderful photographs. They show a life well lived and a person who not only was loving but was loved by everyone who got the honor to know him.

Rest in Peace Fritz. You will truly be missed.
