Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Although Fritz will be missed by family and friends, we all can take comfort with the knowledge that he is with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and is no longer in pain.

Great family man and friend to many. Enjoyed working with Fritz on many computer forms that he helped develop for the Board of Education and County Government. May my prayers be with the family. 

Dear Hadra Family,  I am so sorry that I will be out of town for Fritz's funeral on Wednesday.  I knew Fritz from dealing with him at The Schwab Company as our Moore Business Forms sales rep.  As a young IT professional right out of college Fritz really helped me get my forms automated on our new systems.  Each time I came up with an idea Fritz helped me make it better with his keen sense of formology.  Fritz was one of those kind of people that really made your business life better.  After our business closed 10 years ago I would see Fritz around town and we always had great stories to reminisce about.  My thoughts are with your family at this time but from my perspective Fritz lived a good life and had lots of fun doing it.   Doug
