Praying for comfort and peace for family. He was a close friend and neighbor of my husband's (Bobby Miles) since childhood.

We are so sorry to hear of Cecil's passing. He was a great friend to all of us at the United States Attorney's Office and a fellow employee we could always count on. May God richly bless and comfort those of you he leaves behind. I never knew a nicer fellow or a more rabid baseball fan, especially for the Braves for some reason when he worked with us.
Kent McDaniel,
Former First Assistant U.S. Attorney

To the Ferrell family:

I was blessed to know Cecil during his tenure at the United States Attorney’s office in Jackson. He was such a kind and gentle man who always had a smile on his face even when things were not going well. He had that keen ability to put everyone around him at ease.

Bless his soul and bless all of you in this time of sorrow. Cecil was a great guy and will long be remembered.
