Pam, Scott and families - so sorry for your loss. Mr Barnes was a good and kind man. I remember in the past years seeing him cutting his grass keeping an immaculate yard and I was amazed he was able to still do that. He will be missed. Sending prayers to you all.

Much love and many prayers to the family and friends of Mr. Barnes. When Pam and I were buddies back in high school, I spent many happy times at the Barnes home and Mr. Barnes was right there, always kind and sweet.
