David, Adam, and family - Kathryn has been on my mind so much the last month. Memories of long chats in the kitchen, seeing her handwriting on the notebooks we kept for Shannon, pictures of days that she and you, David, took her to the State Fair, your wedding. So many more memories, just pop into my head. Kathryn was such an integral part of our family for so many years, and I won't ever forget that. She was a blessing to us, and we are so deeply sorry for the pain you are having now that she has died. I look forward, as I know you do, to the day when we will see each other again, and will keep you in prayer as you grieve the loss of a wonderful, dedicated, and loving woman. Peace be with each of you. Cathy Sweeney, March 19, 2022 Unfortunately, I never met Mrs. Barham but from what Adam has shared with his friends she sounded like a wonderful mother. My heart goes out to Adam, his family and the many friends she made. Jade Finn, March 18, 2022 My deepest sympathies to the families of Kathryn. She and I were coworkers many moons ago. She was a sweet & kind lady. I’m honored to have known her. Heather Scruggs, March 18, 2022 My heart hurts for you but sings praises for Kathryn in her heavenly healing.

Michelle Cano, March 14, 2022 Beloved by God and all who knew her. She touched a lot of lives. She taught the children in church about Christ, the gospel and God's true love. I saw those kids grow stronger in their faith and relationshios under that nurturing. She will live eternally in our hearts and with God. Beautiful life that glorified Christ. Love you Kathryn. Karima Hambey, March 13, 2022 I am a friend of Adam’s. While I did not get the chance to know Mrs. Kathryn, I get the feeling that she was an incredible lady who lived a wonderful, rich life on this earth. My heart goes out to this family, and I will be keeping you in my prayers.
