extending my deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to Bodie and the entire Loftis family.
a lot of fond memories from junior deputy. its hard to believe it's been forty-two years since we played on that baseball field. Nevertheless, I'm still grateful and proud to have played for Coach Loftis. I appreciate the time and energy he spent trying to make us better. I certainly benefitted from his efforts

Ferrell and Barbara came into my life when they moved on Michael Drive. They had two little boys Bodie and Rusty. They were young and both of them were beautiful inside and out. They are a big part of my most loving memories. We used to go to the lake camping, had Taco night at least once a month, all the tacos could eat! There are so many great memories no way to mention them all. Later came the rest of the bunch, Sara, Doug and last but not least Wendy. I used to babysit for them when they went out with my Mom and Dad, Leo and Janet Oaks. They were the best of friends. You will be greatly missed Ferrell and always know I love you all! God bless you 😇
