To the Risher family, we cannot express what Mrs. Joann and Mr. Oscar have both meant to us since we first moved here to Walker. Their hospitality was immeasurable as neighbors which in no time quickly turned to friends. Through the years they have been there for our family which is something we will always remember. I will always remember the many visits with them under their patio where she always had a cold glass of her ice tea waiting. And will always hold close to my heart our latest visits with her in the nursing home. I thank the Lord for leading our paths to cross Many years ago and to have had the privilege of knowing them both. They were a blessing to me and my family more than they will have ever known. She like Mr. Oscar will truly be missed by all who loved her. God bless you! Love L. J. Nobles and family.
