Paula Z, Amber and Tarissa, I have no words to express my broken heart for you girls! Ferrald was an awesome man and wonderful cousin! We and everyone that knew him loved him dearly. My God give you peace and comfort just knowing he is in Heaven and not suffering anymore. His prayer of being healed has been answered. Not as we had hoped here on earth but in Heaven. Love you all so much and you will be in our daily prayers!!!

Ferrald was always willing to help someone in need. Always with a smile on his face. He loved his wonderful wife and those special gifts from a God, “his girls”. Then the extra special gifts, “ the grandkids”. There was nothing more special to him than his family. He loved his Lord and savior and it showed in everything he did. EVERYONE is going to miss you Ferrald, but we all know we will all be together again when we all reunite in heaven. Until then keep and eye on your special family from above. LOVE & YOU!
