So sorry for your loss.

Mrs. Fish had a huge impact on all her students. I have such fond memories of being in her fifth grade class. She has been gracious to take time to speak to those of us who passed through her classes and to listen to us share our lives with her. My thoughts and prayers are with the family as you move forward without her here on Earth. Her testimony for her Lord has been an example to everyone. So there is no doubt that she is celebrating and praising her Lord right now.
Love to you all,
Ann Honeycutt Lawrence
