Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
To all the Fritts Family, Remembering with much fondness all the years together we shared at Eye Associates. The occasional lunches we shared following retirement were so special. You were always so proud of your family and just lit up when you spoke about them. May you rest in Peace, Dear Louise. Love, Carrie
To the family of Louise Fritts. I'm remembering all the good times and sad times Louise and I had for over 35 years. We started out as co-workers at Eye Associates of North Jersey, to become friends for life. She was a friend, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister that you could always count on. You never had to ask twice for her love and compassion that she would show you. My dear friend you will be missed deeply. May you rest in peace. I love you Louise. Love Nancy
