I send my condolences to the family of Wallace Fisher, one of the "seagoing cowboys" who tended livestock sent to help Europe rebuild after WWII . I'm always sad to lose another cowboy. My prayers are with you in this time of loss.

Wally was such a special uncle. As our son Luke said, "family functions seemed complete when Wally was there." We all remember the times we spent with Wally and Evie and then with Wally and Marilyn, Never flamboyant or self-promoting Wally, did and said so many good things. I especially remember him telling me about his CPS experiences during WW II. Wally worked with impoverished African American communities in the deep south. Long before most mid-westerners knew much about the power of racism, Wally saw and understood what life was like for the poorest of the poor. He was a wonderful man.

Wally was special! He loved his work at the REC, his church, his "retirement", and especially his family. I was fortunate to know Wally as a co-worker, a friend, and as brothers in Christ. May God bless you all during this time goodbyes and celebration.
