Refine, John, and Matt
I am so sad for your loss. The Farley family is one of the iconic families for all of us who had the blessing to know you. I feel as though I have lost a part of myself, no one can give the kind of loving acceptance and appreciation for just letting people be themselves, what kind souls you all have. Mr. Farley was an amazing man and good to all who knew him and so much fun!

I can't put in words the emotion I felt when I read the news. I know from personal experience how you will remember him everyday, miss him and fondly remember him in your hearts. My thoughts and prayers are with you through this.

My deepest condolences to John Farley's Sr. Family. For the lost of a husband a father and grandfather and father in law to two great ladies. John and I were cousin's but more like brothers. When living in upstate New York we shared many memories. I will not forget the time I spent in Tn. John and I talked for hours in the back yard. And went to SONIC for milk shakes. To share one memory sneaking in to the races in Waterloo, NY as kids, And the times we went fishing. I will miss you brother may you RIP. God Bless your family I will never forget our memories. Love always Claude
