Celebration of Gilbert Farris

Life is a funny thing.  We all go about our day with loved ones, friends, co-workers, and strangers and even alone.  Then there are those lucky few.  Those lucky few that find their true partner in life.  The idea of a soulmate is something we hear about as children and begin to dismiss as adults.  Until, one day, we see someone that has "it".  That undeniable connection and almost visible light when two people look into each others eyes.  There is a happiness that surrounds them and you find yourself wanting to be near those two lucky people that have found their one true partner.  This is the story of Pam and Gilbert.  It is rare enough to find your soulmate in life, but it is even rarer to find truly generous people.  Their love, the rooms in their home, the food from their cupboard, the clothes from their dressers, the gas from their car and the money from their wallet.  Pam and Gilbert touched so many lives in so many ways.  Pam and Gilbert’s amazing love has also gifted the world with two truly amazing people, their children, Brandi and Joel.

Truly generous people that put others needs before their own tend to think – “I will get that done later” or “There will be time for my needs down the road”.  As before, life is a funny thing, but one of the facts of life is “time catches up with us all”.  Pam and Gilbert loved so strongly and gave so much to so many.  Now, Pam and Gilbert are the ones in need.  Gilbert was just diagnosed with Stage 4 Liver Cancer and has a very short time left with Pam and their children.

We have created this donation page to help Pam, Brandi and Joel cope with the loss of a truly great, loving, generous and amazing person, Gilbert.  I encourage you to please help touch the lives of people that have given so much to so many.  ALL donations will be given directly to the family.

Thank you for your time and God Bless You.  God Bless Pam, Brandi and Joel.  God Bless Gilbert.  God must be in need of a new angel and he couldn’t have chosen a better soul than Gilbert.

Thank you.
