In Memory Of My Grampa Fisher

On December 28th, 2010
the world lost a wonderful man!
My Grampa Fisher passed away after a long illness
in a nursing home with his family by his side.
Though he was not my "real" Grandfather  the name
"Grampa Fisher" suited him well!
He was loved by all and he may be gone but,
 will NEVER be forgotten!

Vernon E. Fisher, 85, longtime resident of Merrimac, died Tuesday, Dec. 28, 2010
at Maplewood Harborside Nursing Center in Amesbury.
He was the husband of Carole Ann (Barnes) Pratt.

Born in Haverhill on March 16, 1925,
he was the son of the late William R. and Iola M. (Huntoon) Fisher.
Mr. Fisher was a U.S. Army veteran of World War II
and had worked for the Town of Merrimac.

My Aunt Robin (by marriage), it was her Father and
during this time,
I ask that you all keep her in your prayers!
My Aunt is a wonderful woman and in recent years,
I have enjoyed having a closer relationship with her.
In my younger days when
I was young and stupid we didn't see eye to eye.
Over the last few years we have become closer
and this means a lot to me.
I think of her very highly, she is
strong, creative, funny, frugal
and so much fun to be around!
During this time she needs all the
prayers and love this world has to offer!

Auntie you are in my thoughts and prayers!

Grampa Fisher, I will never forget you and will miss you dearly!
