    I, also, live at Morningside. Often, I would go over to Mrs. Fischer’s hall and find her sitting, visitingbeside the Med Cart. She always had the most striking smile on her face. I have a little Pappillon dog that rides in my lap ( I use a wheelchair). Your mother would light up up like a Christmas tree when she saw my little dog. We would then chat and laugh. If per chance my dog was not with me, your mother would straight away ask where she was. I will miss your mom-her laugh - her bright personality - but especially her gorgeous smile!

    My mother was also survived by her son, Jeffrey Fischer-Smith (me) and his husband, Michael. We spoke every Sunday - religiously. I loved our conversations. I don't have the proper words to express the feeling of loss. She was a wonderful mother and was loved by this son.
