  1. Delores, I am sadden to hear of Edward’s passing. You two have been together for over 4 decades through all the ups and downs, but continued to love and support each other. You have been inseparable and I know you will miss him beyond words, but believe he is present with the Lord. May you cherish ALL the sweet memories you’ve made together and all great places you have lived to make them! Dee, I pray that you will honor Edward by pressing into our Lord for comfort, strength and a relationship that will keep you like no one else can.

    To the Farris siblings, I extend sincere condolences in the loss of your beloved brother.

    I love you, deeply. Your sister, Lisa.

  2. Dee and family, our thoughts are with you during this time… Riverland Community College Nursing staff and faculty.
