  1. Fern (and Cecil) were like a second set or parents when I was young. Ken and I were very close friends and while time and space caused us to grow apart, I still remember many fond memories of traveling with the Wertzs. Fern was always so patient with us wild young guys and I loved her very much. I am so sorry that her passing escaped my notice but, Ken, wherever you are, know that I remember you and your folks often and the wonderful times we had together.

  2. Bob & Judy
