I’m so sad to hear of Mrs Fisher’s passing. What a warm and gentle lady. To you Mr Fisher (my mentor from Canada Permanent days) no doubt you have wonderful memories. Sincere condolences to you and the family.

We little knew when we woke this morning.
The sorrow the day would bring
The call was sudden, the shock severe,
To part with one we loved so dear,
She left us quickly,, her thoughts unknown,
But left us a memory. We are proud to own
So treasure her Lord, in your garden of rest,
For when on earth, she was one of the best,

Mr. Fisher, Alison, Andrew, David and Doug,

I send my condolences to you all, with much love,
