My thoughts are with you and your family today Caleb. I am sorry I couldn’t be there to show you my support, but your father sounded like a great man. Cherish the time you had together, and the knowledge you gained from him. No person knows how long our time on earth is going to last, and while it will be difficult to see through the sorrow at times, try to focus on all of the good memories. Those will last a lifetime.

Sending my condolences to the Ferrill family. Remembering Scott as a very studious, active young man as I did things at his Carbondale childhood home with his sister Debbie. He was always busy doing something. This young passing reminds me that life is getting shorter as we all grow older. Cherish his love and life with those precious teachings and memories. He did well in what He tried to accomplished and we thank him for his service and sacrifice with his military duties. Faithful son, husband, Father, and worker as I read. I salute him for being an awesome asset to us all. Keep his legacy in your hearts, minds, and soul. Have loved Debbie and the folks for along time....and I carry you all now in my prayers. Jesus has him resting in heaven and He now is a spiritual angel keeping watch still day and night. Love in Christ, Karen McNeely McMinn Carbondale IL
