I would like to thank my Grandfather, Nelson Farrand, who gave me the greatest gift - a lead to follow on
our Farrand Family.
Also, I want to thank the following people, without whom I'd still be floundering: Joanne Todd Rabun, John
Scott, Dennis Dyckman, and Paul Farrand.
People that contributed that don't even know it are Robert Farrand of Grant's Pass, OR and Miss Morna
Farrand of O'Neill, Nebraska.
Last but not least, my new friends, Gerri Gornik, and Barbara Kemp.
Thank you, all of you, for the hard work that you did that made my work just a little bit easier. I only
hope that I've somehow repaid you in kind.
