    Dominica and I offer our sincere sympathy to the family during this time. Sis Barker will really be missed. I thank God for her service to Him, her loving heart, and for always having a good uplifting word to say.

    She is certainly one of the people that helped mold a lot of us growing up. We will see her in glory one day, by God’s grace.

    I am very saddened to hear of Mrs. Margaret’s passing. She always has been a sweet and shining spirit like a candle seen from Heaven. Always good to everyone she met. Growing up in T’ville, I appreciated that more than anyone will know. Not all adults were good to me, nor welcoming. But I could always count on love when I saw Mrs. Margaret. I know that all her family is encouraged, because this woman showed the Love of Christ every day. Sent with love and acknowledgement.
