    Please know that I am praying for you all in your time of grief. I only got to meet Mr. Fry one time, not too long ago, and what will always stand out to me was the smile on his face. You could tell he loved his family deeply. Today the angels in Heaven are rejoicing with him for he now has his new body and there is a confident hope that one day you will see him again. I love you Lisa and I am only a phone call away.

  4. I would like to express condolences from myself and my mother Lucille. Aaron was a true friend to our family for many years. My dad Woody worked with Aaron at the Tx Highway Dept . Aaron worked on a lot of vehicles for us and taught me a lot about working on cars, always being helpful with advice. He even helped us haul hay. When my dad was in the VA Hospital in Temple, Aaron made the long trip to visit and offer spiritual support. We were fortunate to call Aaron our friend. Gary Gilpin

  5. Dear Joyce and Family,

    With sincere sympathy,

    Ray and Jan Sis and family

  6. We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Fry. His life must have been full of joy. We can’t ever remember seeing him without that huge friendly smile even at hundreds of 6 A.M. cold and rainy garage sales. it always made our day to share friendly and funny gossip about friends and competitors. We’ll forever miss him. God speed Mr. Fry

  7. Lisa, Lane, & family, I’m so sorry for your loss. Reading his obit and the tributes to him, it is obvious he was a well loved friend & family man. I am praying for all of you to enjoy God’s peace & comfort along with your good memories of Mr. Fry. LI’ve to all.

  8. Lisa, Lane, and all the kids and grandkids…we are so sad for you all in your loss of your beloved daddy and granddaddy. I don’t think I ever met him or your mom, but from knowing you, Lisa, I know they taught you how to passionately love others. I loved how you loved my parents and were willing to do anything for them, no matter what…and that endeared you to me forever. I can see how much the Frys seem to love each other to the max…and that’s a wonderful quality to have as a family. That very love will get you through this time of sadness…plus depending on the best Love of All, God’s Love. We are praying for you all.

  9. Dear Joyce and Family,
    It was sad to hear that Aaron has passed. I will remember him as a very nice man. Always a smile for everyone. He was really good to work with at TxDot. That is where I first met him. Let me know if I can do anything for you.
    Praying for you and your family.

  10. Dear Joyce, Bridget and family,

    You are in our thoughts and prayers. Aaron will be missed by everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. Aaron was always on the go, making the most of everyday. He is now at peace and pain free. Aaron is resting now with the Lord. He was loved by many. May this bring you comfort during this most difficult time.

  11. Dear Joyce, Bridget and family,

    I have just now learned about Aaron’s death. He was one of the dearest men I have had the pleasure of meeting….always smiling, being friendly and joking and such a good junker…the envy of all women junker’s who have never had the beautiful experience of such a wonderfully supportive spouse! Just a few weeks ago, he was asking if it was ok to come to a sale in his wheel chair. Aaron loved to junk, too!
    Joyce, in the days ahead, I know you and your family will enjoy recalling the many fond and loving memories of your time together with Aaron. Thank God for those!
    I know that Aaron, after such a long illness, was weary. May he rest in peace!
