I was sad to hear this news. It brought back fond memories from when we were young. He always had a smile and a genuine laugh! From a distant cousin..may God be with you all in this difficult time.

If You Could See Me Now
If you could see me now you wouldn’t shed a tear.
Though you may not understand why I’m no longer there.
Remember my spirit that is the real me because I’m still very
Much alive, I’ve just been set free, Oh, if you could only see!
I have beheld our Father’s face and I’ve touched my Savior’s
Hand. All of Heaven’s angels rejoiced as I entered the promised
Land. Beyond the gates of pearl I’ve walked on the golden streets.
I’ve touched the walls of jasper and dipped my foot in the
Crystal sea. The beauty is beyond words and nothing could
Compare, I’ve even seen your mansion and someday
I’ll meet you there. Let Jesus be your guide because
His Word will show you the way! So please don’t
Cry because we will meet again someday.

Our sincerest sympathies to Barbara and family. Farrin was a very hard working individual, and it was my honor to have worked with him. We worked many years together, and his never ending care for his customers and work will always be in my memories of Farrin. Rest in peace, my friend. I feel I am a better person for having known Farrin Cunningham.
