Mrs. Rutherford was a cherished friend of my mother, Virginia Ferguson. We came to think of her as a family member.
She will be missed but I know the angels were happy to see her.

James Leveille-Bonner Posted at 10:45am

Bobbie, Edith considered all of you as part of her family. She always expressed what joy you brought and how much you included her with your family. We appreciate all you were to her. We have wonderful stories from the staff about how Mrs Ferguson and our grandmother were inseparable and how they watched out for each other. We were bless to have you all in her life. Thank you so much.
