Dear Barnes family,
I am so sorry to read of your loss. I could not help but think of Psalms 90:10 where it says "because of special mightiness they are eighty years". No doubt Ms. Barnes was especially mighty and witnessed much in her lifetime. I'm sure she will be missed by many. Again, my sincere condolences.

Dear Malcolm and family,
Your Mother and family have always been a part of my life and I will miss her as I know you will. I remember playing in the yard and Poochie and Spot chasing around after us kids,and going to the drive-in movie. She was a wonderful lady and a great friend to my Mother. She had a long life and leaves many memories for you and others. God bless all of you. Love to all of you.
