To the Farkas Family, I send my sincere condolences. To Carl (Gina) Farkas, I send many prayers and much sympathy. I did not know your mother, however Carl, from the picture posted, she appears to have been a beautiful lady and to me, she resembles Betty Lynn, who played the role of Thelma Lou in the Any Griffith Show and I saw the resemblance immediately. May the precious memories of your mother sustain you in the following days of your loss. I so appreciated you and Gina's prayers for me and my family when we lost our mom and dad. You have been a good friend to our family. May God bless you all during this time of grieving.
