We are so sorry to hear about your mom's passing. Sending angels and prayers to help all the families through this difficult time. Fern was such a sweet-heart. Just loved talking to her when she and Jean Willson would help with apples. I liked how she would tease my dad!!! When she moved to Blenheim sometimes we (mom) would have coffee at the Venus with her. She touched so many people and so much energy. Prayers at this time.

I had the privileged of taking care of Fern for the last three years and enjoyed every moment of it. I learned alot from this lady. I am at least fortunate to have memories with her and for that I am so thankful. Well God you have another Angel take care of her till I am able to meet up with her again!!! Just know my heart is with you her family this week and especially on Saturday as we say our good-byes to Fern on earth but we shall see her later in our lives!
