My most sincere condolences Crystal, Chris, Wyatt and the entire family with the loss of Hunter. It is always sad to lose a loved one, but extremely so when it is such a young life shortened, but he will rest in the peace of our Lord and watch over all who remain . The Lord has a plan which we cannot know until that call to return happens. Remember all the good times and the delightful conversations.
Sincerely, Leon Bernard

Dear Barker family,
I was so sorry to hear of your loss of sweet Hunter. Hunter was one of my former students. I remember Hunter as a sweet, well mannered little boy. Hunter always spoke highly of his brother Wyatt and his parents. When ever I would run into you as a family I always saw love. You as parents were ALWAYS there for your boys. Please know Hunter made a never forgotten impression on me. My heart breaks for you. May the Lord sustain you during this time. My deepest sympathy.
Karen Thompson (RES)

I met Hunter a couple of times. What a well mannered young man. Also, quite a character. God must have needed him because he is gone too soon. Fly high. 💔🙏
