We are so sorry for your loss but know he is in a better place where there is no pain or sorrow. Loved the tribute to your dad girls. He was a very gentle man & don’t think I ever heard him say a bad word about anyone. So sorry he had to endure so much while he was here but the glory can’t be compared to what he had to go through here. Prayers & hugs for the family. We love you all.
To the Frizzell family, we offer our deepest condolences for the loss of a great man. I personally see Debora, the daughter of the departed, as one of the most loving and caring individuals I have ever met. She fills my heart with joy. I know that type of warmth in her heart comes from being raised in a loving family. Although I only met Mr. Frizzell a few times, I see his love for his family through Debora’s eyes. Know that my family and I will keep him in our prayers, and also his family on earth so God can guide them through the journey of life.
I sincerely want to thank each one of you who took the time in writing your heart felt message in the Ted Frizzell Guestbook. May God bless you all!
We are so sorry for your lose praying God send peace and comfort for your entire family all our love
I will deeply miss Ted. 3 times a week we had a "date" at DaVita. Our chairs were next to each other. I enjoyed our conversations and just being in his presence. I would tease Ted that he was my "boyfriend" and made sure to check in with whoever left first.Ted was an incredible individual and his calming presence will be missed.Diana, I am sorry for your loss. You are a special lady. He spoke highly of you. My prayers are with you during this time.
