    I thouroughly enjoyed talking with Fisher and commentating about his surfing talent at the Native Sons Surf and Spike Classic. He sure was one heck of a terrific competitor and a trendsetter in the surf.

    TO MANY FISHER WAS KNOWN AS A GREAT SURFER. TO MANY HE WAS KNOWN AS A GREAT FISHERMAN. TO MANY HE WAS KNOW HAS THE GUY WHO WROTE ARTICLES, OR HE WAS THE GUY PEOPLE WROTE ABOUT. WELL TO ME HE IS MY SISTERS SON, MY NEPHEW, JUST PLAIN OLE FISHER. I JUST HOPE THAT HE KNEW I WAS VERY PROUD OF HIM. LIFE DID NOT SEEM GOOD TO FISHER. HE WOULD CLIMB THAT LADDER AND THEN GET KNOCKED DOWN. HE WAS A GREAT FRIEND TO MY HUSBAND TIM. WE BOTH MISS HIM DEARLY. WHEN HE WOULD WRITE THE ARTICLES OR ARTICLES WERE WROTE ABOUT HIM HE WOULD ALWAYS CALL ME AND TIM AND LET US KNOW. I AM SO SORRY THAT WE NEVER TOLD YOU ENOUGH ON HOW PROUD WE WERE OF YOU. ANYTHING YOU ATTEMPTED TO DO YOU WERE THE BEST AT IT. WE ARE SO PROUD TO BE YOUR FAMILY AND TO HAVE THE TIME WE SPENT WITH YOU IN OUR HEARTS.
