Fern ~ I will miss your smiles and great hugs as you would kiss me each time we were together. Your love for your family has always been unconditional. I have been so blessed to have you in my life all these years. You have been a wonderful role model for me. The loving wife for Papa, the dearest mother and grandma, as well as a wonderful mother-in-law and friend. I will miss you and I love you.

What wonderful pictures of your family! It has been such a delight to know both your mom and dad these past years. I will always rememeber your mom's singing--the bawdy songs were the best--laughter makes the workload lighter and she provided lots of laughter! I'm glad she has found peace,I will miss her.

To all my family in Seattle: I am so sorry that we have lost Fern, that dear person whose laughter and personality made her one of the true "characters" of the family. I have so many fond memories: Fern having to carry me as a small child through the Funhouse at Playland because I was too scared to walk, all the time spent at family picnics and visits at Granite Falls and, most recently, the reunions that Fern and Al had at their home.
You couldn't have asked for a more devoted mother.
With love from Diane & Fred

Dearest Mom, I am so relieved that you are free from pain & you're with dad. For all of your family your void will never be filled. YOU ARE THE BEST!! I am so blessed that I was given you as my mother. You are my best friend & my favorite person in the world. I will miss you forever. Your loving daughter, Vicki
