#FarrisStory: 'Don't let someone tell you, you can'd do it...if you work hard you can do anything'

"My great grandparents started with nothing and lived through the Great Depression. My great grandmother helped in raising her brothers and sisters. Grandpa volunteered to go into the military during World War II in the Army Air Force (AAF). They wrote letters back and forth every day when he was in the service. Reading the letters from 70 years ago shows the special kind of love that a relationship should have. They had their own code for closing the letters and it was 1-4-3, which stood for the amount of letters in the words they were saying, 'I LOVE YOU.' After the war my grandpa took over the family business at the age of 21, after his father passed away. Him and my grandmother started with nothing and grew the business, which continues today with my uncle. My grandma always said 'I am a friend to all who like to eat.' My grandpa would say, 'Don't let someone tell you, you can't do it ... if you work hard you can do anything.'" - Andrew from McClure, PA
