  • We will miss Aunt Fern very much. She was always so kind to us and remembered details of our lives. She always asked about our family and shared her concern and interest for us.
    She is the last of our parents generation in our family and now the younger generation has to step up to fill her shoes. She will be missed but we know she was ready to leave this world as her body was failing her.
    We wish peace and comfort on your family at this time of change.
    Love and blessings!
