Farr family - my mother has been a resident at Covington for some time. My daily visits to her included visits with Elmer. I didn't know Elmer in his heyday of youth or military service or family life. I only knew of him as the sweet little fellow who made brightened my visits to Covington. He loved to eat and would talk about anything under the sun. I enjoyed when he'd get tickled and his hoarce laugh. He's moved on to a glorious peace, but that doesn't stop me from missing him when I go see my mother. My sympathies to you all

Thoughts of Sympathy are extended to the Family, and all those mourning Mr. Farr's loss. Nothing wounds most hearts as deeply, as the loss of someone who was truly loved. As an "examiner of hearts", God completely understands our grief and sorrows. In fact, his word kindly reminds us that his "understanding is infinite." May trust in his support and guidance draw you ever closer to Him, and to each other, as you endure this time of personal sorrow.
Ps 26:2 ; Ps 147:5
