Baby Anakin Fisher

Anakin Malone Fisher, went to sleep with the angels Monday, April 17, 2017. He may have lived only a few short hours, but his memory will carry on in our hearts forever.

Anakin will be forever loved and cherished by his mommy and daddy, Sherri and Danny Sr.; his big brother, Danny Jr.; his big sister, Christina; his grandparents, Cheryl, Henry, Alicia, Keith and Hank; his great-grandma, Mary; many aunts, uncles, cousins and special friends. He was welcomed in to Heaven by his great-grandparents and his Uncle Bugs.

Cremation has occurred and no services will be held at this time. Memorial contributions may be directed to the family in loving memory of Anakin.

Little Footprints
How very softly
you tiptoed
in to our world.
Almost silently.
Only a moment you stayed.
But what an imprint
Your footsteps have left
Upon our hearts.
