It has been a long time since high school - but I saw the passing of your mom and decided it was a great time to send a note. In the past few years I ran into your mom but I didn't put the pieces together who she was right away. Thoughts and prayers with you and your family.

"Dear Don, Deb and Doug,
Saddened to read of the passing of your mother. Although I did not know her well, I can attest to her goodness and character based on the children she raised. - Look forward to our next plane ride, Don. The Mankato fly-in breakfast was over the top. Looking forward to seeing the progress on the plane project your dad left you and of course, will enjoy again seeing your first class hangar.  Regards and my sympathy, Dave Brown"

"Dear Ferry Family,
I only learned recently of the passing of your Mother.  Please accept my sincere condolences.  I had not visited your home since your Dad died 20 years ago, although I would see Marian in town several times per year.  I happened to be driving by your home several weeks ago and decided to stop and see if she still lived there.  Marian was busy in the garden--and after rounding up the dog--which she said bites every male--including her sons--we had some iced tea and a delightful chat.  I told her our son had recently been hired by Delta--although he continues to be a pilot in the military.  His interest in flying probably was kindled when your Dad took us to Oshkosh for the EAA meet.  I spent a lot of time on Tuesdays at Rotary with your Dad---as well as skiing with him in Colorado and Utah.  They were both wonderful people.  I will cherish the memories of the time we spent together--including sanding various parts of the Stearman project.  I know that you all will have many to cherish in the years ahead as well. ptk"

"I am so very saddened by the loss of my wonderful friend, Marian. I will always treasure the special moments we shared. She spoke proudly and often of her children, late husband, brother, and sister. She was the kindest, wittiest, and one of the best persons I have had the priviledge to know. She had a great love for the outdoors, wildlife and her family. She even had four feral cats she tamed and loved, as well as her kitty and her very protective dog, Birdie. She also made a perfect cup of tea, along with a great conversation. My heart goes out to her family, her kitty, and Birdie, whom she all loved so much.
I love you Marian.
You will always be remembered.
You will forever be, my grandma."
