I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. Fara's passing. I have many memories of Mrs. Fara from my childhood at church. I remember having lots of fun with her and singing with Beth & Becky, her smile and I can still hear her laugh in my head to this day. I am thankful for having her light be a part of my life. I pray for God's peace and comfort to surround you all.
