    Ferrendia was such a sweet and loving person. Though I haven’t had the chance to see her in a long time, I will always love her and cherish the memories we did share together while growing up out at Central. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.

    We’re so sorry for your loss. Ferrendia was a good person. She was so helpful to Sample family during Larry’s illness. Lonnie and I liked and enjoyed her company.

    Friends for 42 yrs! Blink of an eye! Never cross words, only abundant bouts of laughter. Always left her filled with happiness. Very ill this last year, & she wanted to talk so badly but couldn’t. We visited some of her campgrounds. I am so glad she got to do that. It gave her time to find peace and spend more time visiting. My husband and I went up and spent two hours with her the night before she passed. I held her hand and talked to her (I believe she heard me). I talked some of our many memories together. HOW MUCH I LOVED this woman! I considered her one of my Greatest Blessings from God. The words: “MISS HER” can’t even cover the Depth of My Sorrow. Enduring friendships like this are a rarity in life. Two weeks prior to her passing she said: “you never know when your time will come…so live your life to the fullest and embrace those you Love!” My Heart WEEPS. She is irreplaceable. Love, Hugs & Kisses my sweet, sweet friend. Beverly
