Please accept my deepest sympathies for the loss of this good man. What an impressive life of service he lived to both family and country! Through his daughter, and my dear friend, Sharone, I have heard many wonderful things about him, especially in his role of father and grandfather. I feel fortunate that I had the opportunity to meet him in person at her wedding. May he rest in peace, and may his memory be eternal. Sending love to all his family and friends during this difficult time.

Unfortunately, I never had the privilege of meeting Col. Farrar, but am so moved by his bio, his accomplishments, loving family and background. He exemplifies all that is wonderful in this world, the USA and beyond. Condolences to his family and the memories you have.
