I will never forget the day I met to visit with Mr. and Mrs. Barnes about some business opportunities around 1989. Since that time and for the past 22 years I enjoyed our friendship and working relationship. Mrs. Barnes was a special person and will be missed by all who knew her. Blessings to All.

Dear Family of Hannah Jane,
I have such fond memories of your Mom. She was such sweet and friendly person. She waited on me many times at the post office. May I add your Dad was our mailman on Route 1 for many years.
I send my condolences to all of you.

Words cannot describe the pain in one's heart when a loved one dies. Our comfort comes in knowing that she is now no longer in pain and in glory with Jesus, Our Savior. Still we will miss her sweet smile and her gentle ways. She was a true lady and left us with wonderful memories. We love you, Grandmother!
