Dear Liz and family,

I am so sorry for your loss. I only had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Farabee once in Oklahoma City, but even in that one encounter I could see he had the kindest of souls and a deep love for his daughter. I know he will be deeply missed. Sending my deepest condolences and love to the Farabee family.
