    We are heartbroken and devastated about losing Farris. He has been through so much and always fought the good fight and pulled through. We hoped and prayed he would do it again, but that was not meant to be. God wanted to take him to a better place where there is no more suffering, no more pain, only light, beauty and happiness. We know how grief-stricken you all are and we want you to know that we will always be there to help and support you in every way we can. Farris will always live on in our hearts and we will always cherish the many great memories of how much love, happiness and just plain fun he gave to all of us. We will always miss our “H-a-n-n-a”. May his soul rest in eternal peace. Love always, your cousins Tony & Manera xoxoxoxoxo
