Sandra, I'm sending my condolences to you and Walter. Mark would send them if he were here, but I guess the two of them are probably dancing together!
Love, Lee

Dear Walter, Michael & family,
I am sorry for your loss. I will always remember Aunt Jane in her crisp white nurse's uniform, I loved and admired her so very much. We know she is at peace with our Lord and Savior and enjoying the reunion with her family in heaven.
Love you all

Walter, Michael and families,
My heart goes out to all of you. I am so grateful I was able to see and sit down and talk with her a few months ago. So many of her expressions and gestures reminded me of my dad. I know all the Ferrells had a great reunion on Monday! Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Love,

I am so sorry for your loss. I know the pain of losing those we love is very hard and I pray for your comfort and strength to get through these upcoming days. I agree with Melissa, I have never seen a picture of your Mom so young. She's beautiful! I can only imagine the joy of all of them together in heaven and what a day it must have been! Love and prayers to all of you!
