#FarrisStory: Showcase of Incredible Character

"This story is about the generational passage of one heritage of incredible character to another.

My mother-in-law was an incredible woman. Her family came to the United States when she was 7. She became her church pianist at 13, she married and gave birth to 3 daughters. She made a great home and was generous with her time and talents. If you met her, you were her friend. She was very humble and the perfect example of a Christian that I know. In her late 40s she did battle with cancer and temporarily won. 13 years later cancer came back and got her. Her life in between was full. She gave her time to her friends and family. Now her middle daughter, my wife, is the spitting image. She stayed at home to raise our 4 children. She did a remarkable job. She went back into the workforce and within a few years became the CFO of a non-profit organization that takes care of the community. She gives of her time and money to weekly feed the homeless. That is weekly she helps provide around 70 meals to homeless who live in the desert and won't go into town to seek help. She has become 'Momma G' to many kids of all ages who need a mom who will love them, listen to them and provide that needed hug and warmth. I have the pleasure of knowing 2 very great women in my life and I am watching this develop in my two daughters. I am very blessed." - William from Lancaster, CA
