The Helton family will miss our sweet neighbor! Having lived "just down the road" from Mrs. McFarland for many years, we will always fondly remember seeing her doing her daily walks; she "power walked" long before anyone used that term! She cherished her family, and our prayers are with you. May you find comfort in special memories and in God's unfailing grace!
