Happy Easter Uncle Fred. Thank you for being you. Thank you for pouring yourself into the many lives you have touched. Thanks for teaching me how to forget about negativity and that you can just make up your mind to live your best life. "Don't worry. Be Happy".

Thank you for taking care of Aunty Lupe, Freddy and Tiffaney the way you did. Give Nana a big hug and a kiss from all of us. I am sure she had a special plate of tamales and a bottle od ketchup just for you.

I honor you Sir and may you experience eternal peace. This bible verse is for you:

"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life."

To the Lurhsen's,

My extended family members past 20yrs and counting. Here to pay my respects and send my condolences to the Lurhsen's and friends. It's been a blessing and great experience getting to know you guys. What a journey it has been. From basketball at Big D's backyard in Westminster, to the classic kickback parties in HB. I'll never forget Uncle Fred! A unique and funny character. There wasn't a moment, where Uncle Fred wouldn't try to cheer someone up or cracking jokes! His motto was," Tic Toc don't worry, be happy!" As a young kid, I was like, " huh what?! Lol". But!!! As you get older, you start to realize and understand what that really means and why he chose to say it! It's true with the old saying, "You never realize what you have, until it's gone!" We all had a great person with us. Uncle Fred, I know you're in a better place and in peace. Myself and Sunee will never forget those convos we used to have with you, at Big D's gatherings. Man, I'm going to miss those talks with you. Your stories, playing the harmonica and just your presence alone. I don't think you realized how much of an impact, you've made in our lives. You will be truly and deeply missed Uncle! Until we meet again, "Tic Toc don't worry, be happy!!!" Love you!

Fred , I’m always gonna remember the good times. Growing up across the street from you and all your brothers. Going to camp down on the beach at San O . Lots of boards on the top of your car , we couldn’t fit another person inside. Blasting “ Smoke on the Water “ , 8 track . Your probably playing your harmonica right now while catching some perfect waves. Rest In Peace my friend, Tic Toc Tic Toc stay strong up there

You were always their in support of my family and took good care of my Little Sister Lupe. You made such an impact to my life. Will always remember one of the times we went to pick up fish for a family cookout. Look over at me. Said you loved me, but I needed to balance my life. I was all about work, no time for myself and love one's. That affected me, changed my life. Now I strive to provide and enjoy life! Rest in peace, am here for your family my Brother Fred!

Uncle Fred,
You were the very best Uncle!
I remember the day you told me I was your god daughter too, because you couldn’t be Krista’s without being mine as well. You always lived up to that promise and I will be forever grateful.
Please give Kevin a big hug for me and help him watch over us. I’ll see you in my dreams and all my great memories of you. I love you.
