Walter Charles "Babe" Farrell 1933-2009


Today at 2:15 p.m. Eastern, Eileen's dad went home to be with Jesus. It is so sad to see him gone but at the same time it is a time of rejoicing that he is in a better place and no longer in pain. Please pray for his wife Betty, Eileen, and her siblings during this time of loss. Many of their family members are here or are enroute. There will be a memorial service on Saturday, January 10. More information to follow.

Our prayers are with you and your family. We both know how extremely difficult it is to lose your father. Bob and I have both lost ours. Yes, they are with Jesus, but it is still so hard on us who are left behind. We look forward to seeing our loved ones who have went on and the day we will all be with our Savior, celebrating together for eternity!

Oh Eileen, I'm so sorry to hear this. Sue had called earlier to tell us about the downward turn in your dad's condition and then I saw Melissa's comment on Facebook just now.

God give you, Jerry, Betty, the kids and the extended family much comfort and peace.

Our love,
The Allens

Sweet sister - I am so sorry that you have to bear this loss but know that you understand that all things work together for you, since you so dearly love our Lord. I will be praying especially for your Mom as well, and for the young hearts in your family that will be hurt by this loss. I'll call or email to see what we can do, but know in the meantime we are praying for all -
Love you!

Eileen, We are sorry about your loss and understand the saddness and the rejoycing too. Three years ago on Jan. 7 my fateher went to be with our Lord, 5 days later Jay's father followed. Please know you are in our prayers!! God bless, Jay and Sharry Holdren
