May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived. What an blessing it was to know "Grand dad" as we've always referred to him. It was beautiful to attend such an honorable service today on his behalf. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with all the family and may you feel the peace that passes all understanding that only God can give.

Keith, we love and appreciate you all so very much.

The Simmons family

Dorothy, Matt, Keith & families,

We are so sorry for your loss. Wished we could have made it to the services, would have loved seeing you all. Mother isn't driving anymore due to eyesight & I work in the court system and couldn't be off today. Mike is working in Oklahoma and wont be in until later this week.

Ya'll are in our thoughts and prayer.

Love, Dean, Mike & Penny McClendon

Our deepest sympathy to the family. Mr Barrow was instrumental in helping us qualify for our very first home (built in 1970), through FHA. He was "Matt's Dad"--Matt and Monroe were school friends. He still has fond memories of Matt and his family. Again, our condolences to all.....
Monroe and Cindy Sanford
