My thoughts and prayers go out to the immediate family of Fred Fischer. He is my mother's cousin's husband but is more like an Uncle to me. He and Marlene always came down to Austin to celebrate and support my family. And as my wife Cindy has said, he always took the time to talk to you and listen as well. I feel fortunate that my dad and I got to have a great conversation with him the last time he and Marlene came to Austin. And then it continued on the back porch with more family. What a great man. It sometimes feels like people like him are few and far between. His memory will continue on.
