Fish was a good person. I will miss him sitting on the picnic table under the tree and his sense of humor.
I will miss his smile and the rabbit. I am grateful to have known him. May God Bless all of you now and always.

Condolence from Francis Pugh on June 29th, 2015 12:50 pm

To Kim and Kristie and the rest of the “Fish” Family. I too knew Fish. I went to school with him. Stood around and joked with him several times. He had a great sense of humor. When you would see him without his glass eye; you could ask him about it and his response was ,” I have it in my pocket watching my money.” So long Fish and may you rest in Peace. May God bless each of you and our prayers will continue to be with the Fish Family.
