My deepest condolences and Love to you dear ((((Fritz)))).

May Earl rest in peace and pain free as he now can rassle with the angels. My love and big bear hugs to you, Fritz, I am so very sorry and know what it's like to lose a husband after such a long time, and know how much it hurts. Your love was a beacon to everyone and an example of overcoming such big hurtles to live with the one you love and then finally being able to marry him. My heart is with you both today, Earl in heaven and you here on earth. He will always be over your shoulder until you meet again some day.❤️

What Sara said.

I've heard so much about Earl that I almost feel like I've met him, but sadly I haven't.

Thank you all so much, and thanks Chuck for remembering and posting these pictures from back then.

Ack, Fritz, how incredibly sad to hear about Earl. I can't imagine what that's like. I'm just glad for all the wonderful years you had together. I doubt the pain will even lessen for a great long while, but I hope the brightness begins to show through again . . . soonISH.



It is with great sadness that I have to update this list.  Fritz informed us that just after midnight, his loving partner Earl (Spruceman on the forum) had passed away.

Spruceman was not a prolific poster, but all of us knew him and learned about him through Fritz's posts.   Earl attended a few dinners with Brokies, as well as attended the memorial for Jackie (Painted Shoes).

Fritz, we send you all of our love at this difficult time.

So sorry to hear about Earl, Fritz.

Sending you warm thoughts!
