    Dear Sherry, Kris, David and all the family, Don and I are so very sorry to learn of this great loss. What a fine man! We treasure our memories of working together when our daughters were involved in 4H and other horseriding activities years ago. My goodness did we ever work and support those girls and have fun doing it.
    May good memories, God’s love, and that of your many friends, help carry you through these sad days. love, Sally and Don Ferrell
