My family sure has fund memories of Fern and Keith. We shared the neighborhood with this great family for many years in Port Huron Township. Numerous monthly get-togethers of the Lesters and our parent's "Edison" friends to play Bridge and Euchre. Heart felt sympathies to you all. Hugs and Prayers. Love Rick & Rose Nelson Kewaunee, WI

I remember Fern with such fondness along with those of you who survive her. I will never forget the years we spent living next door and am very grateful for Fern teaching me to crochet with all her patience. Love to all of you, I am still in Birchwood Estates. Jan (Hoppenworth) VanBuskirk
