One thought on “Ferne Marie Mitchum

  1. My husband and I would like to express our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Ferne. We wanted to share with you comfort from God’s Word found in John 5:28,29. Here we are given the wonderful hope of the resurrection of our dear loved ones, here on earth, just as Lazarus was in John 11. Remember too, our Heavenly Father shares our pain and sorrow when someone we love dies. (Psalm 34:18) May you draw comfort from the many loving memories you all made and shared together, share them with others and her memory will be cherished by all of you who knew and loved her. Although it has been a month,the loss is still felt, take care of your selves and each other.
