Farrell will be sadly missed. Nila I'm sorry I couldn't be at the funeral but not feeling well and was afraid to try to go. He was a great guy I really loved him dearly.

Farrell was a sweet fun loving person. The first time we met he was always wanting me to play some kind of game with him while Deb wanting us to swim. They were great and I felt blessed to have them as brother and sister in-laws. We didn't see each other often but we knew we were family and meant to be together. When Jimmy and Ella would come to the Park in camper we would always have a good time around camp fire. You will be greatly missed by the lives you have touched but each will be blessed by your love and kindness. Say " Hi" to all as you rest in God's arms. Love you Bro!
