Dad Passed Away



Dad is wearing the red cap.


My dad passed away peacefully on Sunday morning. His last words were that he would have liked to make it to their 70th anniversary in January. The memorial service will be on Wednesday afternoon in Fowler. We are so thankful that he didn't have to suffer for very long, but we miss him so much.


Since Dad was the caretaker, we now have to make arrangements for care for Mother; there is no way she can live by herself. I'm going to be occupied with all of the arrangements for a while.


Thank you for your prayers and encouragement.


Fritz


born April 5, 1916, near Fort Rice, North Dakota


died November 25, 2007, Pueblo, Colorado


He was a good man.


Rest in peace, Daddy
