Doc, We are so sorry to hear that you have lost the love of your life. She was such a joy to be around. Ferne was always there to receive her hug from us and her smile just lit up the room. When I first came to Portsmouth Moose and was trying to learn how to line dance you two became my fast friends and invited me to some of your favorite places to dance. You will never know how much that meant to me. Ferne will always be in my memories and heart and will always be my friend. You were very blessed to have found her and make her your life. Prayers for you for peace in your heart. Blessings for her as she has reached her ultimate goal and is now whole again. Love goes out to you Doc. Thank you both for being a part of my life. Liz Milam

I worked with Ferne for a number of years at DCMA. Ferne had the kindest soul and most generous heart of anyone you will ever meet. It saddens me that she is no longer with us, but I know she is in a much better place. May GOD bless her entire family.

There are no words that express the goodness of Ferne. She loved the animals who could not take care of themselves. She held the hand of her friends who were going through a bad time. She can not be replaced but I know she is looking after us.
Ruthie & Larry Edwards left a message on December 26, 2013:
I met Ferne more than 30 yrs ago through my husband, Larry, while we were dating. Ferne was such a wonderful and upbeat friend with an infectious smile. Because of Ferne, we joined the Eastern Virginia Ski Club and shared many fun trips together. I will never forget all the great times we had together having dinner, sharing ski condos, or whatever. Unfortunately, I did lose touch with her until recently but, I never forgot her. May she forever R.I.P. Love you, Ferne!
Margaret Dangerfield left a message on August 26, 2014:
Ferne was a beautiful person inside and out. I used to work with her at DCMA and she would make my day when she walked into my cubicle. She always had a smile from ear to ear and we would sit and share stories and laugh. She also tried to teach me to line dance and that was something she also laughed about. I just couldn't get my hips to move and she would come up on stage and walk me through the moves............can't imagine this world without her beautiful smile!

Doc: Our thoughts and prayers are with you. There are a few people that I will always remember, and Ferne is one. The two of you were a big part of my time at the police dept. and made it so much more fun. I will always remember the nights at the dance hall with the lemon drops..and the fire in your backyard. Ferne was a wonderful lady and earned her way to heaven.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you Doc. We had so much fun with the CCPC floats and the parades. Ferne was a light and always had made things fun when she was around at the Car Wash Fundraisers and the others we used to put on together. We were always laughing and having a good time and this is what will be with me always. She and I both loved the animals and she was a true advocate for them. Please know we are thinking about you and our hearts are with you. Love Susan and Michael

Hi Doc, Although my heart breaks for you and all of us who love Ferne, I know this is just temporary. We will all be with her again some day. While we wait to join her, know that Jesus has her in the palm of His hand, loving her. She's whole and completely healed and enjoying life, waiting for us! Dancing without us! She's enjoying peace! Be at peace Doc and know she is in the loving presents of our Lord! One of the last things she said to me was, "I'm going to sit with Jesus!" And she is! Love ya', Aud
