More Recollections of Farish

  1. Thank you for creating this site and for your kind words. It’s almost impossible to describe why this is such a great loss to someone who didn’t know my Uncle; he was just that unique and unbelievably witty. I am finding it comforting to read all of these other tributes to him. I can only imagine the stories we haven’t yet heard!

    • I can only hope that I can affect but a small number of the hundreds and hundreds of individuals whose lives were impacted in some great way by Farish, as clearly evidenced by the tremendous tributes and packed memorial service on Saturday. Not even during my graduation was that church as packed.
