This Obituary Has 3 Condolences

  1. EILEEN CLARK- We got the e-mail from the Colorado Springs Country Club regarding Fernie this morning on our Cruise boat in Hanoi.. It is truly a big surprise to us. The last time we saw you both a few weeks ago he seemed to be doing so well. We grew to love Fernie over the years as a true friend. Our Condolences to you and your Family. We will return on Feb. 20th and will give you a call when we arrive back home. Our thought are with you. Love to you from Vietnam – Jim & Lee Ringe jamesdringe@comcast.net

  2. We are so sorry for your loss. When this happens in our family we need more than human strength. God and his Son can provide what we need. Please review these scriptures : John 5:28-29 “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

  3. One of the joys of playing bridge at The Bridge Center is the opportunity to meet people of all ages and backgrounds. Playing with Fernie was always a delight. He was a skilled player and a consummate gentlemen. His sense of humor was bright and uplifting and warm. I will miss seeing him at “the tables” but I will never forget him. My sympathy goes to his friends, family, and all of us who hold him in high regard.
