Rich, Terri, Lisa and families,
I am so very sorry that your mom has left us; but, I realize that she had suffered enough and it was time for her to go with Our Lord and be at peace with no further suffering.
In addition to being my cousin, she was also a good friend and we will miss her.
Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
John (Ed) and Elaine Echelle

Sincerest Sympathy to the family of Jane Ferrari. I graduated with Jane from CCHS. She was a lovely person. I worked with your Father, Dick Ferrari. You all had salt of the earth parents. I admired and respected Dick and Jane. You were lucky to have had them in your life.
Peace and Healing Energy are flowing to the whole family.
Blessings, Ann Kelley Nolan

Dear Ferrai Family,
The scriptures so lovingly let’s us know that, If you draw close to God in prayer,â€œHe himself will sustain you.â€ Psalm 55:22. So as you think about Jane, May the God of comfort embrace you and bring to your minds joyful memories. My condolences to you all.
