I will always remember auntie Ferne for having a loving, sweet spirit and tender heart. She had an amazing heart of gold and beautiful smile.
She always went out of her way to help when she could. She loved her family very much and it showed.
One of the fondest memories I have is when her and my uncle James attended my first child’s baby party. They were both so happy to go, and I never seen her without a smile.
She may be gone but she will never be forgotten. Until we meet again, Auntie...
