To the Barclay Family:
So sorry to hear of your loss. It is a loss to others also. Jim was a man that loved his Lord and serving Him. He loved his family and taught them thru words and actions. He knew how to walk and talk the Christian way. His friends knew of his faith in the Lord. What a great man of God Jim was.
During this time, may you feel God's love in a special way. His strength will be there for you. He has love and grace to carry you. Keep on trusting Him. Many prayers are being said for you. Keep his memories alive--and they will be a comfort.
Doris Dettloff and famly.

Jim Barkley will be remembered as a kind man with compassion for others. A fond memory is that when he would come to our store in Matthews, he never came empty handed. He will be missed. My prayers and condolences to his family.
