I just today found out about your passing old friend. I will never forget your gentle, kind, and caring Spirit. You were the best friend that anyone could hope for. Undying loyalty and selflessness were your trademarks. I am so honored to have known you. I know that you must have been thrilled to cross over into the arms of your loving daughter. I know how her passing pained you so.....

Until we meet again Mr. Richard...

My sincere condolences to the family at this time of loss. Even Jesus wept at the loss of a loved one. I have found comfort in the scriptural promises at Acts 24:15 and Rev 21:3, 4 and I pray you will as well.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My condolences to the Barbay family. It is a painful thing to lose a precious love one in death. Even Jesus wept when Lazarus died (John 11:35) and it pains Our Heavenly Father. He did not purpose his human family to get sick and die but purposed us to live and enjoy life in perfect health. It is still his purpose (Psalm 37:11, 29). He calls death an enemy that will be removed forever__1 Corinthians 15:26 “the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing”; Sickness will be a thing of the past_ Isaiah 33:24 ”and no resident will say, “I am sick”; and He promise to awaken our love ones in the memorial tombs from asleep in death__ Hosea 13:14 “From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; From death I will recover them.” Allow these words to keep comforting all of you.
