The world lost a great gift when Ferlin passed. I'd like to share a memory - I was a female vocalist in Branson, MO in the early 90s. Ferlin had a morning show at the Cristy Lane Theatre, where I was fortunate enough to land the job to open for him and also sing backup for him with another gal in the second half of the show. Hands down Ferlin was the sweetest and kindest professional entertainer I've ever worked with over the years and there have been many. When I left the show, he actually teared up and wept with me as I was saying goodbye. He truly cared about me. He treated me with respect and was a tremendous encourager. I loved singing with him on stage and when he would act like Simon Crum, it always made me laugh. I will miss you Ferlin. The world and I, was fortunate to know you. - Wanette

A fantastic man with a fantastic voice I still listen to him and watch his videos. RIP Ferlin you will not be forgotten.
And thank you for your service in WWll.
When I was a kid about 7years old I use to listen to my dad's Ferlin Husky's cassette tapes. I remember singing along to "On the wings of a Dove". Then I figured out how to fix the tab on the cassette so I could record with my small cassette recorder/player. On the end of the song "Timber I'm falling in love with you" He sings Timber over and over, I recorded after his last Timber I sang Timber several times added to the song. One day many years later when I was a teenager. We were on a trip my dad put that tape in the player in his suburban. As we were driving that song came to the end and then you heard this little boy singing Timber over and over . I was so embarrassed, No one knew I had done that and I had forgotten. Every one laughed. They kept that tape and sill remind me now and then. I'm 52 years old. Thanks Ferlin for your songs that give me and my parents and sister wonderful memories of when I was young.
