Rev.Bill, Barry and family, so sorry to hear about Miss Barbara. Had her on my mind since coming across an old picture of her and Mom at Chamblee Memorial. She was such a beautiful, sweet lady. Love you and keeping you in my prayers.

Bill, you and Barbara meant so much to me and to my family, when you were our pastor at Spring Creek. Barbara was a beautiful lady, inside and out! May God hold you in His loving arms and comfort your heart.

Brother Bill, words are not adequate to express our great sorrow in the loss of your beloved Barbara. She was a great lady, and a dear friend. At my mother's funeral, you read a poem entitled "God' Garden" which meant a lot to my family. Now, Sue and I want to offer it to you.

"God looked around his garden and found an empty place, he then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, he knew you were in pain. He knew that you would never get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb, so he closed your weary eyelids and whispered, 'Peace be Thine'. It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn't go alone, for part of us went with you the day God called you home."

May God richly bless and sustain you.
