Memories

We loved Grandma Fischer more than we can say and we'll miss her sweet hugs and the mischievous gleam in her eye everyday. She was a fighter right up until the end, but now she is with Grandpa in Heaven, which is where she has always wanted to be. We are so happy to know that Lucy will always have Grandma Fischer watching over her.
