Lee & Family, A wonderful, loving, smiling, humorous, kind, and caring man is who Barney has always been, and will forever be to me. I only wish I had spent more time with him. This I will accomplish further down the road. I hope all find comfort in knowing that he is now with family and friends in a place much nicer than this world and that those who have been apart from him are now enjoying his generous smile and laughter. Because he was such a wonderful man-he will be missed until the end of all our time. May God keep, bless, and comfort each of you. Today and always... Brett Christoffel, March 20, 2005 To LaVerne, Wish that we could be there with you and for you. You know how much that you and Barney mean to us. Things won't be the same without Barney supervising the cooking of the pork burgers. I know that he will be there in spirit with suitcase in hand. LaVerne remember the good times. Our deepest sympathies are with you. Always remember that we love you just as we will always love Barney. With love, Dale & Robin Jenkins & James Fife Dale & Robin Jenkins & James Fife, March 19, 2005
