Janis Chandler Castro, May 4, 2016 Dear Pastor Allgood we are so sorry to hear the homegoing of our dear sister Allgood. We still remember how she was a blessing to us when we came from India as newly weds. She was instrumental in blessing us with all the things we needed to start a home. She was a bright shining light for Jesus and a blessing to many. We are sure that heaven rejoices because of her. With lots of love Jude and Merina Jude and Merina Francis, April 6, 2013 We were saddened by the tidings of the passing of Barbara Allgood from this earthly plain, but we are joyful in knowing she is now with our Lord in person, and in our future, waiting there with her ever- present smile and greeting "Well, hello, darlin". Our family is blessed to have had the Allgoods, true soldiers of the cross of Christ who pursued our children and shepherded them right into the church and altar, in our family. To Pastor Allgood and all the beloved Allgood family we say, "The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace." Amen. With great love and appreciation, Earl and Janis Dorris, March 7, 2013 In 1998 we were new to Texas and were blessed to rent an apartment from Rev. & Mrs. Allgood. They were our landlords for many years. I remember after the birth of our son in 1999, even though we were not members of their church, they came to visit us in the hospital. Mrs. Allgood brought me a gift of perfume. I thought that was so kind, a gift just for me. Mrs. Allgood was a blessing to our family and a kind and Godly woman. We pray that The Lord would be with Rev. Allgood and his family during this time. Mike & Shauna Vargas, March 5, 2013 We are all mentored by your example. This world is a better place because of you. If there were ever a saint on this earth, you were one. Thank you for the consistent, unswerving example you set. As of an Old Testament saint, it can be said of you, "...and he being dead, yet speaketh." When your daughter in law, Barbara Kay was in your church, she lived to hear you teach Sunday School. Your words are carrying her today. Thank you for showing me how to live for God. Your consistency was unsurpassed. I will meet you there. Dr. Adonna Otwell, March 3, 2013 Dear Pastor Allgood and Family, Our community has lost a kind, caring lady whose contributions over the years have made Plano Texas a wonderful place to live, raise a family and worship our God.It's been a blessing to watch her reach out to those dealing with a loss and I thank the entire "Allgood Ministry" for her life of service. Ted Dickey, March 3, 2013 My life was deeply impacted by Sis. Barbara Allgood. Her life radiated a special presence of the Lord. She certainly lived up to the spiritual meaning of her name. She was a stranger to this world, but was always headed home. And now she has arrived! Heb. 11:13 "These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. 14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country...16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city." May God bless Bro. Allgood and all the family. We love you and are praying for you! James Martin, March 3, 2013 Bro. Allgood, I believe it was A.C. Bates who said: We haven't lost them, we know where they are'. This is very true for a special saint of God known as BARBARA ANN ALLGOOD. Her life has blessed untold numbers of people. We cherish those memories. May the God of all comfort be with you, Bro. Allgood, Larry and Sherry. Our prayers are with you. (I'm sorry I cannot attend the service due to my wife being hospitalized in serious condition. Bro. Martin) Harley & Christene Martin, March 3, 2013 What a sweet caring person- She lived the Christian life . She will be greatly missed but know that she is with Jesus and the angels singing. God Bless the family and May God give comfort and peace during this time of loss. Joyce Ann Strange, March 2, 2013 David Wayne, Danna, Joshua, Le Anne and I are with you in our thoughts & prayers. We have so many "Precious Memories" of her and her family. "Heaven's Sounding Sweeter All The Time." Norma Joyce Moore, March 2, 2013 I am so sorry to hear of Sister Allgood's passing it was a great pleasure and blessing to have attended your church and to have known you both and felt the Love and Compassion that was so openly shared with me over the years. I can truthfully say that Sister Allgood's allowing the showing of God's love through her was a great comfort many times in my life. Ardeena M Benedict-Holliday, March 2, 2013 I can just hear the beautiful music in heaven. Sis (grandma) Opal Mitchell will be waiting at those Eastern gate to see her.

GOD BLESS Howard Wayne Strange, March 2, 2013 We remember with affection the friendship of this precious lady for more than 50 years. Our condolence and prayer are with Brother Leonard and family. Sammy & Pattie Dodd, March 2, 2013 I remember playing my clarinet in the church band, along with my Dad and brother, with Sister Allgood leading out on the organ. Kyle W. Hall, March 1, 2013 We will truly miss this wonderfully LADY of God ! I will miss her as my own mother, what a reunion they are having.I will miss her usual greeting of " Hello darlin, I love you" and we all knew she ment every word of it. Robert Blackstock, March 1, 2013 Dear Bro. Allgood, Our hearts are saddened by the passing of Sis. Allgood from this life. But we are also encouraged because we know our separation is not forever. I remember her favorite song that I sang, "Wedding Music," and I know she is enjoying the reality of that song right now. So many wonderful memories we have of our time worshiping with her. Our prayers are with you and all your family during this time. May God strengthen and encourage you all as He wraps you in His arms of love.
