Passing

There are times in each of our lives that rain falls, hard times come and it helps to reach out to our friends and to our God for a little support. This is the place to express those needs, concerns and situations so others in the AAPK family can keep you in their prayers.

Sorry to hear, Ferg. Never an easy thing to deal with.

Father, bless Ferguson and all who knew Bill with the comfort of Your peace.
For Your glory, in Jesus' name. Amen.
Take care and God bless,

Ferg, it sucks with a capital 'S' but as you know, all you can do is sail on with a big hole in your heart. Condolences to all involved.

So sorry for your loss....

Ferg I'm very sorry for your loss. I lost one of my good friends to the corona virus about three weeks ago so I can certainly relate to what you're experiencing. Prayers for you and all those he leaves behind.
