    To the Barker family, Hugs, kisses, and my deepest condolences. Kathy was a good friend. We would talk and talk about so many things.Our talks always ended in a good laugh. We were dual mothers. When her son wasn’t at my house, then my son was at her house while they were growing up. They were like brothers. It hurts my heart to know that she is gone. Enjoy those newly gained angel wings and rest in Heaven until we meet again, Kathy Ann Barker.
