So sorry for your loss. We must have heard the story hundreds of times that Fern and Hanks first date was to her and Walt's wedding dance. They were such good friends. She had such a beautiful soul, we both loved her like family. May God's blessings be with all the family.

My sympathies to the family. Delores came to visit Grandma Fern on the day she made her trip to heaven. I will always remember Delores telling Fern that she will pray for her and to save her a spot at the table. Hope those two ladies are hugging in joy!!!
