    Dear John, Angela and Roger. Just want you to know we are holding our former neighbors in our prayers. We never forget the neighbors that were raised alongside our kids. You played ball together (and hide and seek). We were blessed to have good neighbors. You had wonderful caring parents and it shows in the way you take care of your family. We are lifting you in our prayers as you move forward

    The Fergerson, Kennedy and Webb families as well as many friends have lost a good and sweet lady. Growing up with the Fergersons as neighbors was a delight. All parents and children are the back bones of our society. Myra will be greatly missed. May God bless each with comfort

    Myra was a mentor for me my first year as a classroom teacher. She was always kind and thoughtful to everyone. After she retired I would often see her while she worked in the mall. Myra was not only my neighbor at Sylvan Park school but also in Rolling River. A dear sweet lady, I’m sorry for your loss.

    Adria, we are so sorry to read of your Grandmother’s passing. Pray she passed peacefully and that when the healing begins you will be left with special memories of her. I remember her from your wedding. Sweet lady. God bless.

    Joan, we are sorry to hear of this. A beautiful picture of her, exactly the way I remember her. I have good memories of our times together at the home of John and Beatrice at Christmas. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

    I also taught with Myra at Sylvan Park. She was there when I was so blessed to get my start as a PE teacher. We even found out we were distant relatives. She was a very kind person and I know she will be missed dearly.
