Saddened to hear of the passing of Mrs. Ferro. She opened her home and her heart to the children of a generation. I still remember my pre-school years spent in her basement learning, playing, and of course eating her home-cooked lunches. Years later, when I was home on winter break during my sophomore year in college, I was out Christmas shopping at a local mall and heard someone whisper my name from behind me. I turned to see the smile of Mrs. Ferro. I was amazed she recognized me as an adult and we proceeded to have a fifteen minute conversation catching up on our families and such. My deepest condolences to Jacquie, Kevin, Kim, Darryl, and everyone else in Carole's family. She will... always be missed and loved.Read more

Dear Ferro family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I give my heartfelt condolences to the family. What a generous and loving person Carole person proved to be when she was alive. Carole will surely be missed. Please know that at this difficult time God can help comfort you. He cares for humans. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 God promises he will soon bring back loved ones we've loss in death, this includes Carole. This promise is found in the Bible at John 5:28,29
