From Mr. Joe Meadows, the funeral director who handled SPC Farris' services:
“To all the members of the Patriot Guard I want to say “Thank You” for all you do and the way you show honor and respect to the fallen soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice for those of us here at home.
Last Saturday so many of you came out for Army Spc. Joshua Farris and I know it is by the invitation of the family, but the magnitude of your presence in such a solemn time overwhelms our hearts with pride of our country and patriotism.
Spc Farris gave his life to protect us from those who seek to destroy us and you honored him in such a way that few can. Please convey my appreciation to all the members of the Patriot Guard.
