Thoughts and prayers to the Fries family on their loss of Michael. My twin brother and I grew up with the Fries children and Michael was my brother's best friend. We will remember all the good times we had together and all the time we spent with his brothers and sister when they lived across the street. Love and hugs to you all. God Bless!
