I was so shocked to see the obit in yesterday's Sun News. Was he sick or was this one a surprise? Thoughts and Prayers go out to his family and friends!!!

I knew Farris well. I lived down the street from his grocery store when I lived on Prospect. I used to go there a lot. I would ride my bike there and get gum. I'd see him working there, helping his parents. He was a good kid. His parents made him work. He gave me a couple free sodas. He was a kind soul and worked hard at his store. Guess he stuck with it. R.I.P Farris.

I lived a few blocks from S&Ms and Farris and I were friends in kindergarten and the first few grades at Fairwood. I remember, during the Six Day War in 1967, he and I joking about being an Arab and a Jew and friends. We used to play in his room above the store. We fell out of touch in later years, but I always thought fondly on him, and his parents. So long ago now...

It is hard to believe that it has been seven years since Farris passed. He was a good guy with a great sense of humor.

Eddie Wiles and I used to walk to the S&M (Sam and Marys) delicatessen the night before Roehm Junior High track meets and get Cracker Jacks. We felt Cracker Jacks were a great way to enhance our performances (since we could not blood dope with Reindeer blood like the 1970s Finland runners). 

Plus Eddie was a wonderful friend (and still is today). We were comrades in arms battling the evil empires of Ford Junior High and Middleburg Junior High. 

Thanks Farris for those great memories!
