Roxanne has been my best friend since grade school. We shared so many moments of each others lives. Our parents have meant so much to us and to lose one is heart wrenching. Ed was the kindest, gentlest soul and will be missed by so many. Love to Mary, Roxxy, Pat, and family.

My condolences to the Family. I grew up across the street from the Farrington's. And I spent a lot of time with Eds Son Pat. Ed was always kind and welcoming. They would invite me to diner many times. I remember Ed listening to the police scanner on the table next to him. So when Pat and I were running around town we had to behave ourselves. My thoughts and Prayers are with you all. Alan

Roxanne, It's been a true joy to hear all about 'Ed' through your stories and updates, having not met him I feel like I have known him for a very long time- true sign of a lovely human being! I know he was joyous and loving and kind and caring, so difficult to say goodbye to those virtues of every day. Continue to feel his love and presence and all the good he brought to this earth. Condolences to Patrick and your boys, Patrick and Mario. Love to you all, Mary Ellen and KP
