Uncle Martin Ferm-Grandma's Brother


Today was the day. Martin left peacefully at 11:00 a.m. with Carrie by his side. Jay was nearby, and the rest of us joined in shortly. We are grateful that we were able to all be together for this transition, the six original Rock Island Ferms.

Arrangements for a family dinner on Saturday and a memorial service on Sunday are in the conceptual phase and subject to change. Details will be posted as soon as they are finalized.

Thanks again for your love and support!
