Yes Willie, You Can Go Home
by Hazel Fritz
"After retiring from the Army, W. Laird Conrad returns home seeking employment to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a history teacher. Because of their antics growing up, he discovers his boyhood friend, Chad, carries scars of their wild adolescent behavior. With the help of faithful friends, the love of his wife and children, Laird is able to help Chad. It is a story about love of God, country, forgiveness and determination to not let the mistakes and cruelty of others deter ones ambition in life."About the Author
Hazel Fritz was born in Lavelle, a small town in the Pennsylvania coal regions, but, due to job relocations, moved to Hummelstown, Pennsylvania. She and her husband are retirees of the Hershey Company. They are green thumbers; she calls gardening digging in the dirt. Their produce and the yard of beautiful flowers are the envy of many. Due to health problems, they have had to discontinue their favorite vacations camping on Chincoteague Island, Virginia.
Hazel is a person of many talents, i.e. singing, playing piano, sewing, quilt making, play pinochle, cooking and baking, with which she delights her large family of five children, eleven grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren. She is a lover of dogs, especially Labs.
Unlike most authors, Hazel is not a reader, just the newspaper or any religious literature that helps her in teaching Sunday School. To her, teaching is one way to give back to God for His many blessings.
