  1. Cindy and Family— We’re very sorry about your Mom. Over all of the years that we have known each other we always enjoyed her company. She was always full of fun, laughter and concern for others, especially our Mom when she was sick before her death.

    We’ll keep you and your family in our prayers.


  2. Eye has not seen, ear has not heard nor has entered into the minds of men the things that God has prepared for those who know Him.’ Marcia Ferris is now experiencing those wonderful things as she obviously knew her Lord, Savior and Friend.

  3. I will miss my bestest friend. She fought a good fight and ran the race of the high calling. Her desire was that the Lord would say, ‘Well done , thou good and faithful servant.’ She was that, for sure.

  4. Marcia will always hold a special place in my heart. She was a great friend to me and especially my mom. They were the rockin grammas for a lot of babies. Fun times and great laughs. Marcia always had a smile, and I can still hear her sweet voice. I will always feel a great warmth when I remember her.. She is up with our Savior now. Safe healthy and full of joy.. God be with you all. She will be missed on Earth…
