Dear Deanna and Family, We are so sorry for your loss. Fritz was a special person. He loved soldiers and went to great lengths to help them and their families through troubled times. I was honored to work with Sergeant Major Reiter for some five years. He was a selfless leader who inspired us all to do more than we thought possible. I can honestly say that I loved Fritz. I know he is with our Savior in heaven reaping the rewards of a life well lived. Peace be with you all. 🕊🕊🕊
