ELIZABETH W. FRETZ
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...
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.
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!
