Thank you for publishing my father’s obituary [Ira J. Fischer, December 17] and thank you for the editing—you folks made it read so much better than my version. I regret to say that my writing skills and creativity have taken a back seat to my medical practice over the years.
As you can imagine, my family has sustained a tremendous loss with the passing of Dad. Your tribute to him in your newspaper has mitigated some of the pain and anguish we are all experiencing.
Thank you and my very best to you and yours during this holiday season.
PETE FISCHER, MDWilmington, NC
