I am very sorry for the loss of your mother. My childhood
memories recall especially her work in Vacation Bible school
and Sunday school remains a pleasant memory. I will never
forget her smile as being so genuine.. It’s never easy to let go
of a loved one, but always remember she had purpose on this
earth and fulfilled her earthly mission. Please rest assured as
she enters the heavenly portals, she hears the words:
“Welcome home, my good and faithful servant.”

Pat and I would like to send our sincere condolences to the entire family during this time of great loss and sadness.
I always called her Aunt "Sis", which was definitely a term of affection. Most everyone, even non family members who got to know her, referred to her as "Sis". I have nothing but fond memories of times spent with here at seasonal family gatherings.
During the summers when school was out was when I was closest to her because I ate a lot of noon time meals around her table. I would be staying with Grand daddy and Grandma Barnes and working. Often I would walk down the creek to Uncle Jack's house and help with his truck farmimg operation.
Those are some of my fondest memories of childhood and Aunt "Sis" was always there providing a wonderful childhood experience of family, love and stability.
To all of the family, Pat and I send our prayer for the Peace of Christ to enfold you during this time of loss.
Roger and Pat Barnes
