Do the sons remember the fishing experiences at Charlie and Alice's house? I never remember them catching fish, but they had fun trying. Fritz always had a smile and a gift to make anyone laugh. Our deepest sympathy...Mark and Linda

To the family of Fritz Frieders, I don't quite know what to say, I have MANY stories about Fritz! First, I just want to say that I am sorry I couldn't be there in person. Your family is very important to me and my family, and I would have liked to give quite a few "Fritz-like" hugs at a time like this. I say that because that man gave the biggest hugs, he loved everyone and life so much and it came through in those hugs. One thing that I will remember about Fritz was when I left for MN, he told me I wouldn't like it, and shouldn't go. A few years later, and I was still in MN, he saw me and said he was proud of me. He had always given that fatherly advice, and even though he and I fought about it at the time, he came back with those words, "I'm proud of you." I won't forget that, and I definitely won't forget Fritz. With love and sympathy, Karly
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Dad, I can't wait to see you again but for now, thanks for watching over this clan and making us feel safer than ever since you have help in Heaven like, Gram, Tim, our Allen ancestors and most importantly Marge. Thanks for teaching me that sweating the small stuff will take you nowhere, but a smile and a positive attitude will take you everywhere. I love you Beth, Betsenheimer, Bets, PeeWee

Uncle Fritz, You will remain a part of me until I see you up there. We will tee them up on the same team (of course) at a scramble and God will forgive us for our "language". I love you buddy and so do Sam and Paul.

Dear Frieders Families - Please accept my condolences on your profound loss. Although he only met me on a few occasions, Fritz always treated me just like one of the gang. What a wonderful legacy he passed on in the form of his family.
