ELIZ­A­BETH W. FRETZ

Merced Sun-Star (Saturday) - - News -

Three years ago our beloved mother, Beth Fretz, passed away.

We miss her. Her me­mory still in­spires us.

We know that the best way to honor Mom is to live our lives with in­tegrity, as she strived to do.

Mom’s at­ti­tude to­ward life was re­flected in the quotes she dis­played at home...

#1

The pur­pose of life is not only to be happy.

The pur­pose of life is to mat­ter, to be pro­duc­tive, and to have it make some dif­fer­ence that you lived at all.

#2

There’s noth­ing you can’t over­come with de­ter­mi­na­tion, phys­i­cal ex­er­cise & choco­late! #3

You will step on the soil of many coun­tries in your life­time. #4

I would rather be ashes, than dust!

I would rather that my spark should burn out in a bril­liant blaze, than it should be sti­fled by dry-rot.

I would rather be a su­perb me­teor, ev­ery atom of me in mag­nif­i­cent glow, than a sleepy

& per­ma­nent planet.

The func­tion of man is to live, not to just ex­ist.

We love you Mom!
