Not sure what to say?

I was at a Flower show last Sunday at TFS and it was then that I learned of Gene's passing. He delivered our flowers in Fishersville, VA for years. We all loved him. Always had a smile and a joke. I was so saddend to hear of his passing. We were at a Show a few years ago and he brought us over to his home. My blessings go out to his family.
He was a great man!

Mr. Ferguson was such a wonderful person and I loved his choir class at Woodrow Wilson. So enjoyed seeing him at the 61-65 class reunion at Hotel Roanoke. He always had a smile on his face and it was such a joy to see him again. My sympathies to the family. Cathy (Doriot) Harris

My teacher, My inspiration, My Drive for the "Love Of Music", and best of all my friend. Every once in a while, we would run into each other, and even though I'm in my later years, he was still,"Mr.Ferguson" and he always remember me and made me feel special.I also loved his sense of humor and he was never without a smile. He helped me become a better musician, singer and best of all a better person. To the family, I'm sorry for your great loss. And to those who he touched...

I was sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Ferguson. I recall doing the show take off of Hello Dolly during the sixties at Woodrow Wilson and what a great time we had. He was an inspiration and I look forward to the day we will be singing again in Glory. We were blessed by his life.

Joyce, my heart breaks for you and the family! May God bless you with his love as you work through this devastating lose!
