Her sweet daughter Samantha was often there too. Oh, she was loved. She will be missed," Melanie Lynskey said in her own post.

"RIP Chatty Ferrell - what a treat to work with you - thanks for your realness and the honesty you brought to everything you touched," The Ranch actress Nancy Travis tweeted.
