When you come to the edge of all that you know, you must believe in one of two things; there will be earth upon which to stand, Or you will be given wings.
We hope things are getting a little easier. Let us know if you need anything. Berner Family

Barkdull family and close friends,

Love reveals
The hurt within
When loss has come
And life seems dim
God understands
And feels it too
His arms are there
For holding you
God will never
Ignore your pain
But longs for you
To hope again.

Jim was truly a great man. Nicole and I feel blessed to have known him and we will cherish the memories we have of our time spent together.

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
May the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again may the Lord hold you in the palm of His hand.

- Irish Blessing

I will never forget you Jimmy Lee! I hope you're with Grandpa drinking a Milwaukee's Best right now. I love you!
