    Funeral services were held Wednesday for a Dallas County deputy constable who was killed when a wrong-way driver struck his pickup truck Saturday.

    Hundreds attended the services for Constable Guy M. Farley at the Laurel Oaks Funeral Home in Mesquite, including his 16-year-old daughter, MaKayla Farley.

    "It's been hard but you just have to push through it and know that everything is going to be OK," she said.

    Her father father was driving on Farm-to-Market 741 in Crandall when his truck was struck head-on. He was 41 years old.

    "I'm feeling lost, but on the other side of the coin, I know that I will see him again and get to spend more time with him," said Richard Ivy, a family friend.

    Farley is survived by his wife, daughter MaKayla Farley and a 4-year-old daughter.

    "I'm not so much worried about myself, but for my sister, because she's only four and didn't get to spend as much time with my dad as much as I did," MaKayla Farley said.

    Farley had served the county for 15 years. It was a passion Precinct 4 Constable Roy Williams said he couldn't help but notice.

    "It hurts," Williams said. " It hurts, there will be a void -- there is a void."

    The crash is under investigation. The Department of Public Safety is still waiting for toxicology results for the wrong-way driver.
