Mr. Barnett will truly be missed. He was like a father, counselor and much much more. He said he was giving me the advise he gives his daughter. NEVER WANTING US TO SETTLE FOR LESS! He was one of the most honest people I have ever met. I met him through the Memphis Connection. He always wanted their visit to be a pleasant and memorable one. We all love and will miss him dearly. God bless his wife and family.

*Remembering Leslie, I leave this verse of Scripture, that depicts Leslie, to me. ( such a delight, the many years of sharing with the BARNETT FAMILY). (KATHY - RAYMOND)

[PSALMS 13:6] "I will sing unto the LORD (JESUS / YESHU AH) because HE hath dealt bountifully with me". (the 'Overcomer will be compensated both here and in the future state for all troubles and sufferings, and that he will learn that perfect wisdom and infinite LOVE will permit and overrule every trial). Amen!
