Not sure what to say?

I knew Fritz Bystrom when I worked at the Early, Maslach firm for about a year. That job was uncommonly hard for a number of reasons, not the least of which was the enormous volume of work required of the firm's attorneys. Twelve and fourteen hour days were a matter of course. Fritz seemed to always be at his desk, always working and always willing to help with advice, a kind word, or most often of all - a funny story.

Out of curiosity I typed in "Fritz Bystrom" into a search engine and I found myself here....and since I am here I am going to say hello....Hello Bystrom Family....I knew Fritz from way back when, Fritz and I were buddies in grade school in Minneapolis. The last time I saw Fritz was probably sometime between 1958-1961. I don't recall what grade we were in when he moved away. I liked going over to his house, Fritz's dad had built a huge fort out of plywood in the Bystom home basement...

A friend and brother Marine...Fritz captivated me every time he spoke. He touched the lives of hundreds of fellow Marines, enlightening them all with his wit and knowledge....and his leadership. Proud to have served with you my friend....S/F

We went to CSUN together and I've thought of you often over the years. I was saddened to see Fritz's obituary in the paper. Prayers and hugs to you and your family during this very difficult time.

Please accept our deepest sympathies.
Much aloha,

Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts.

Liz and family- we are thinking of you during this difficult time.

It was my honor and privilege to have Fritz as a friend and comrade-in-arms in the Marine Corps for over 30 years. My sincerest condolences to Liz and the family.
Semper Fidelis,
Harry Lee
