Rhonda, Savannah,

Aunt Barbara was one of the kindest ladies I knew. She always made you feel welcomed in her home. She will be missed. RIP Aunt Barbara.

As I meant to say, Lonnie admired her very much. Sincerest condolences to the rest of the family.

Mary and Lonnie Harn, Richmond Hill,

Barbara and Louis owned the property we bought in 1990, but not from them. They had sold it by then. We're grateful for our piece of heaven here on Starr Creek Rd. Through the years and her moving, Barbara NEVER missed paying her Byran Neck Cemetery Association dues which help maintain and keep the cemetery clean. That showed us that she had great respect for her family members who have passed. Lonnie and I admitted her very much

Mary and Lonnie Harn, Richmond Hill GA,

Bob and I are so sorry to hear of Barbara’s passing. She was a sweet lady. We are very sorry for the family’s loss.

Bob and Wanda Hanneman , Savannah , Ga

Mr. Merritt, Wallace and Linda Stafford and James Stafford, I don’t have to tell you how special Barbara was. She was a wonderful person, not only to me but to anyone who knew her. Mr. Merritt, I am so happy she found you after Louis passed away. You were a kind and loving husband to her. I will miss her gentle nature and friendly smile. Sister in law Linda

Aunt Barbara was such a kind, sweet lady to all of her nieces and nephews. Her love for us kids did not go unnoticed. I can hear her calling my name in the halls of St. Joe when I had the honor of working with her in my younger years. Fly high with your heavenly wings, you will be remembered always.

Shannon, Richmond Hill, GA

I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. At difficult times like this we all need some comfort. When I have a lose I enjoy being reminded of the hope at John 5:28 & 29 where it says, “There will be a resurrection.” What a wonderful time to look forward to! I hope you enjoy the short video that brings this to life for you. https://www.jw.org/en/publications/videos/#en/mediaitems/VODMinistryTools/pub-imv_4_VIDEO

My condolences to the family. May you find comfort in the scripture at Revelation 21:4 and the website jw. org.
