We learned earlier in the week of his weakening condition, and while at the dinner table upon praying for Uncle Herbert to have a smooth transition , and to bring comfort to the family  – if it be God’s will.
The following morning, we learned of his passing. Coincidence? Just maybe, not so much  believed today.

Grieving ensued for the loss of a exemplary man, and I’m filled with a fullness for having time well spent with Uncle Herbert, Janice, and Family.
A scripture comes to mind, Revelation 21:1,4
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away,
And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.
This speaks to us as a promise giving beyond what our limited minds can process and fully understand in this physical world.
We will find our loved ones again, Praising our God, while dancing a jig to upbeat music with Uncle Herbert !

Although, we’re not able to physically be with you today,
Know we share in your grief and  a lifetime of beautiful memories!
Eternal Love,  Brian & Tina (Sommers) Robinson

My sweet Uncle Herbert will be so missed. You meet some people that light up a room he was one of those people. His smile made his eyes twinkle. His kindness and love for all of his family was second to none. Smile Uncle Herbert because I know those eyes will twinkle like stars in heaven. Love to Cathy and Cherrie and all family. Love y’all Debbie

Mr. Fischer was the sweetest person that I know. he was like a Dad too me that’s why I called him Daddy fish. I have such fond memories, especially his truck, when he got off from work he would come in the neighborhood honking is horn which sounds like Duke of Hazard everyone in the neighborhood knew he was off work He’s probably up in heaven honking his horn. . Mr. fischer had the sweetest smile that goes along with his sweet personality Mr.fischer would do anything for anyone. He Loved his two Precious girls which he has raised them to be beautiful Ladies. praying for the family in this difficult time may God give the family strength. I’m going too miss his sweet smile and his kindness.. special prayers too Cathy and cherrie who I loved so dearly . Mr. fischer truly going too be missed.
