When we lose a loved one hearts are broken but memories of that person are always with us. Hold your memories close to your heart and remember those special times. Sending thoughts, prayers and hugs your way.
To the Barnett family: Jim and I learned of Barney’s passing from Spence. We send our thoughts and prayers to all of you during this time of loss. We have truly lost a dear friend too. I was fortunate to know Barney for almost 40 years. Jim even longer. We enjoyed so very much his visits to Arizona. We will miss him as we know all of you will too. Unfortunately we will not be able to make it back for the memorial service, but we will be thinking of all of you. Jim & Deb
