The Barton family always felt like a part of our family. Evening phone calls from Bart and Jody were part of our dinner ritual. My dad had such respect for Bart,Jody and Jessie. Your family made the "wheels turn" at Western Fireproofing.

I loved to visit Jesse and her husband when I was a young child. They had a great dog that me and my sister would play with. My dad worked with Jody and we loved to visit during the holidays. What a loving woman and family.
I will treasure those times.
Sorry for your loss.
