    Pat, Saundra and all the Fisher family. You all are in our thoughts and prayers as you grieve the passing of your father and grandfather. One of the hardest things God asks us to do...say goodbye to those we Love and who nurtured us in life. May your journey of grief be gentle and may Spirit hold you close as you remember your father.
