I’m so very sorry to hear of Dana’s passing. I’ve known him for many years and he’s always been so friendly. May God bring some comfort to your family that’s he is no longer suffering.

JOEL RAY FERGUSON, I just don't have the right words to tell you how deeply sorry that I am about your dad 💖💖. He was such a joy in the entire Roberson and Bailey families when you were growing up with your cousin Fred Jr. If you got something new, Fred got the same thing. All of the Nascar races that he took you both too. He had a contagious laugh 😂 😂 and a very big heart, FULL of love for you and for my son, Fred 💯💯💖💖. Several years ago when he was at the Brian's Center, Fred Jr and I just dropped in to see him. He recognized me right away but the look on his face when he realized that was his little Pooh 😂😂 all grown up, was priceless 💯💯😂😂😂💖💖💖. I thought surely that he was going to leap out of his wheelchair. We had a wonderful visit and he did remember a lot of the things that you boys did growing up. We laughed until we cried 😂😂. Your dad has always remained a part of our family growing up on the farm. We will always cherish those wonderful memories. Your daddy was a True American Hero. 🇺🇸🇺🇸. He fought in the Vietnam War. A war described by many as a NIGHTMARE WAR. Few will and have never wanted to talk about it. Your dad was one who never liked to talk about it and I have met many who haven't and won't talk about it. THEY ARE AND WERE TRUE LOVERS OF AMERICA AND ALL THAT IT STOOD FOR. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸. Don't ever forget that as long as you live. My heart is sad because he is gone but deep in my heart I know that sweet Dana knew the Lord and loved the Lord. I AM sure of that. Hold close to your heart all of the great memories on the farm, and always remember how very much he loved you and NEVER FORGET THE SACRIFICE HE MADE FOR OUR COUNTRY ❤️❤️❤️❤️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 ONE NATION UNDER GOD 🙏💖🙏💖🙏💖🙏💖. I LOVE YOU, I AM ALWAYS HERE FOR YOU AND I WANT YOU TO STAND TALL AND BE PROUD OF YOUR WONDERFUL DADDY. He IS HOME WITH THE LORD NOW. NO MORE SUFFERING! NOT ONE PAIN. Physically or mentally or emotionally. GOD HEALED THAT INSTANTLY 💖💖💖💖. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Well Done Good and Faithful Servant, DANA FERGUSON 💖💖💖💖💖💖. I LOVE YOU JOEL RAY FERGUSON 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖. Always and forever ❤️💗,. NA'NA' 🎶🎶💖💖
