I had just started building my relationship with her again. I am so glad that I was able to speak with her and get close to her again before she passed. I just wish that I wouldn't of waited as long as I did. I didn't get to tell her I loved her or that I understood why she had to do what she had to do. So Mom, I love you. And I am so sorry I didn't call you that last week when I was supposed to. I knew I should of I just thought that I would have more time with you. I will miss you Mom. Rest easy.

My oldest sister Mary and I were ten years apart, but we were so close. We spent a lot of time together before life got in the way. She loved to play games and spend time with family. She loved to play Monopoly and she would always win lol. It was very hard to beat her at Monopoly, that was her game! Mary, Lucy and I would get together and have margaritas and play rummy, poker, yahtzee...lots of games. So many hours spent together...wonderful memories. Mary and I would go visit our mom together and play word games and dice with her. Mom loved us coming over. Mary deserved a lot more in life than she received, but it never turned her bitter. She always had a smile, a hug and an I love you ready to give to everyone. You went too soon Mary, and I'm having a really hard time accepting it. Last night I had a thought I should call you, like so many times before. And then I was like, oh right, I can't. I will miss you so much and I'll forever wish I had been able to spend more time with you the last few years. I love you big sis.❤❤

The Christian Concert that Wasn't

Shared by Eric Ferguson on March 25, 2021
I was home from school on summer break and my Sister told me that she had bought me a ticket to a Christian concert she wanted to attend because Dad would not let her go without me. After Dad dropped us off at the Kansas Coliseum, Mary came clean that the tickets were for the Styx Mr. Roboto concert.  Mary knew that Styx was one of my favorite bands. I don't think she knew that Styx was my favorite band at the time. I was very surprised, excited, and I thought it was pretty clever that she was able to convince my dad that it was a Christian band.  It was also the very first rock concert and I got to attend with my sister. The concert was great. The atmosphere was…festive, smokey, smoke that didn't smell like cigarettes.  LOL.  It was quite an experience.

Show & Tell

Shared by Eric Ferguson on March 25, 2021
I attended preparatory high school seminary (grades 10 - 12) out of state. I was home during Christmas break and Mary wanted me to spend a day at school with her (Bishop Carroll) so that she could show off her seminarian brother. I was not very comfortable with the idea but I couldn't let her down by telling her no. That was so uncomfortable that I was never, ever going to do that again until I did it again the following year :(  The good thing was that Mary happy and proud of her brother.
