I am so sorry to hear that Ferd passed on. We knew him well and he kept us well supplied with wood when we had a place in South Branch. He was a man of integrity. We enjoyed his old time South Branch stories, along with those of Buster Dean. My best wishes for your family. Nancy MacRae

So sorry to hear of Jr's passing. Wonderful thoughts of him (and June too), making us feel more then welcome in South Branch. You were there for us during a very difficult time, the passing of both grandparents, Buster and Janet Dean. Wish we could have returned the favor. I know the community will certainly be missing him, as we will too. Our thoughts and prayers to your family. Brian, Julie, Jenna and Jared
— Brian Kaczorowski and family
