To the entire Fischer family:
I would like to express my sincere condolences with the passing of Nanny Fischer.
I have met very few people like her in my life. She had a beautiful gift of warming the hearts of those around her within seconds of meeting. She took a genuine interest in everyone's lives making you feel like the only person in the room even if it was packed full of people. No matter the occasion she brought happiness, love and warmth to those lucky enough to be around her. A remarkable woman who will be missed and never forgotten.
My heart and thoughts go out to everyone as you celebrate her life.
Thinking of you all,
Our deepest sympathy to all of the family. So saddened to hear of Violet's passing. What a remarkable lady she was and she will be missed by so many. Treasure the many memories you have with her and find peace and comfort in knowing she lived a good life and she's now at peace. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Our heartfelt condolences for Violet’s family—-she was such a sweet lady and she loved her family so much, and you were so good to her as well. Heaven has another special angel to watch over you all. Keep your memories of her close to your heart to get you through these difficult days.💕
My beloved Aunt Violet and I share a certain cabbage. And as I peel each leaf of that cabbage the memories come. The smiles. The reassurance that there was no one in the driving shed. The patience. The positive attitude regardless of circumstance. The teasing. Some shielding from Uncle Elmer and Grandpa Jake as required. That presence on facebook. For me she remains an aspirational exemplar of how truly good and kind a human can be. Leslie and I wish you godspeed Dear Violet. And to my cousins, you are in my mind and heart now and forever.
Walt, Marie, Dennis, Bryan, Eunice, Shiela, Darlene and all your families. I was extremely saddened to learn that Auntie Vi had passed away. What a kind and loveing person. We were friends on facebook and always had a sincere comment to anything I posted and it was so nice to keep up to date with her pictures. Whenever we met she always had time to chat and told me many times that my mom was one of her best friends. I will miss her. Love, Bryan
Thinking of the family and their families on this sad day. She was a very special lady and touched the lives of all the Grein families. She will be missed by many people.
Sorry I could not be there to say my final farewell but will be thinking of you guys on Wednesday.
June and Sam
