Zelmyra and Herbert Fisher knew they were right for each other. Before they married, they were each other's best friend. Eighty-seven years of marriage later, their commitment was stronger than ever.

With each day that passed, their relationship grew more secure and solid. They understood that they were individuals. But they could accomplish more together.
Herbert passed away in 2011 at the age of 105. And Zelmyra followed a few years later.
