Diane, Joanne, Barbara, Robbie, George and Family, So very sorry for you loss. Fond memories of hanging out at the Fischer house and pool. Mrs. Fischer was always happy to see us and even put up with our teenage "moods" and challenges. Know that she will be watching over all of you!

Great Grandma, You were loved by many and gave the best advice about things. I remember the story you told us about how you met great grandpa on New years when you were 18 years old. Now you can rest in peace with great grandpa, pop pop, grandma B, Shawn, and everyone else in our family who is in heaven. I find it remarkable that you made it to 95 years old. May you watch over us with the rest of the family.
