  2. Dear Mrs. Farley – I spoke with your husband one time on the phone back around November 2011. Mr. Farley was so helpful and told us you were the breeder of the family and that you were resting, having just returned from a trip where you were assisting a lady whose Afghan Hound had run away. Mr. Farley’s kindness helped us with our decision to purchase two males from you (Pasha and Tippy). Please know all the way in New Hope PA, we feel lucky to have talked with Mr. Farley on the phone that day, and eventually meet you when you delivered two Hosanna Afghan Hounds to us in January 2012. Mr. Farley’s passing away has left us enormously sad for you and your family. Please accept our deepest sympathy. Karen and Ken Henry

  3. Lynda I never got to meet John but from your stories there was never a question in my mind that you were soulmates!! All my thoughts & prayers are with you at this difficult time.
