Sorry to hear of Mr Farmer's passing. Our hearts go out to Becky and family. We did not hear of his passing until days after the services.

We are so sorry to learn of Bill's passing. He was such a good neighbor. Always waiting to say hello when he saw us outside. Always there to lend me, mom or dad that one tool we didn't have...He and Bonnie are such sweet souls..I am sorry I did not hear the news in time to attend the service. May God bless his daughter and her family at this time.

Mr. Farmer was such a sweet man!!! My Father passed away just a little over a year after moving in beside the Farmers. Bill would help out my mother here and there as he was able. Sending my sincerest sympathy & prayers to friends and family!

In thinking about your dad and all that he has been through in this past year, this quotation came to mind. "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known."-Charles Dickens. Our sincerest condolences to you and your mom. With much love and prayer, Barb, Carl and Mary.

Bill, would come to my house and visit and his favorite thing he would say to me was: "In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines, in the shade all the day, that is where I want to play. In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines, in the shade all the day, that is where I want to lay" I met Bill 14 years ago when my husband and I bought the house behind his. There were 84 pine trees on my property when we bought it. I cut down the last pine tree two years ago, and now my neighbor, and good friend is gone. I truely will miss him, but not the pines.
