TO the family of Shirley Fisher - I knew your mother many years ago. I was raised next door in Carterville to Lucille and Carl (Socky) Gossett. They were dear friends and neighbors all my life. I met your Mother and her siblings there. She was such a sweet and kind woman and always had a kind word for others. May your many years of wonderful memories bring you comfort in the days to come.
