    Dear Donna, Rhonda, Greg and families,

    We are so very sorry to learn of Dons passing.

    Our family cherishes the happy memories we have of the “extended” Farney family dinners for over 50 years. Dons steady, upbeat view on a variety of topics, quick smile and easy laugh gave us all a lift. We hope Dons spirit is reunited with his parents Clara and Harold. Don, take good care until we see you again.

    The Ross family, Bob, Tannice & Mark , Collins
