Not sure what to say?

Dear Michelle, Fred & Sue Ann,

I was the Budweiser Yeast salesman that called on Fred in the 60's. We have been good friends ever since. I live in Chicago but travel to Arkon on business quite often and would always call Fred and have dinner with him when I was in town. He was a true friend over the years and we will surely miss him.

TO THE ALVAREZ FAMILY,
IT WAS AN HONOR AND A JOY TO TAKE CARE OF PAPA HE WOULD MAKE ME LAUGH AND BE AMAZED AT THE ANTICS HE WOULD TRY. HE DID SPEAK HIGHLY OF HIS FAMILY WITH ME AND WAS SO PROUD OF YOU MICHELLE. HE HAD GREAT LOVE FOR HIS SISTER AND WANTS THE BEST FOR ALL OF YOU. EVEN IF HE DIDNT TELL YOU ENOUGH HE WAS GRATEFUL FOR THE CARE YOU GAVE HIM. HE TOLD ME THE FIRST TIME I MET HIM HE WAS STUBBORN AS THE DAY WAS LONG.... THANK YOU FOR SHARING HIM WITH ME WHILE I TOOK CARE OF HIM....

Fred was my next door neighbor when I was growing up. I remember hanging around with Fred Jr., Lisa, and Michelle, and I remember Fred's dogs. The Alvarez family brought great joy to my live when I was young, and it was sad to loose Liza, and now Fred Sr., I will never forget either one of them.

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

Sue Ann Prieto & Family, With you in thought and prayer that God will bless, comfort and will give you peace. Sincerely, Gene & Susann Bodo.

To the Alvarez family, Our deepest sympathy and prayers are in our hearts after reading about Uncle Freddy's passing. It is always so sad at someone's passing especially this time of the year. I will always remember Sunday get-togethers over at Grandma and Grandpa's house. May God rest all their souls. Mark and Linda DeMarco

Sorry for your loss.

Dear Alvarez Family,

My deepest condolences to all of you. Freddie was a great friend of my dad's. I remember dad taking me to Kaase's bakery when I was a little girl to watch him decorate a cake. I also had lunch many times with my mom at the Short Stop.

God bless you.

Fred worked for me as a Driver for FirstMerit Bank. He was a wonderful thoughtful man. I'm glad I had the opportunity to meet and work with him.
