    I am saddened to hear my former pastor has left us hear on earth. Selfishly, knowing such a bright light was with us makes me view these times as wholesome, which I have held onto.
    I am so elated to know my former pastor is right where he was always meant to be: with God, in heaven, at peace, & without pain or sorrows.
    Such as amazing spirit he was & I pray for his wife, Jeannie. You both turned some of my family’s most trying times into do-able scenarios. Driving us to youth group, picking us as the adopt-a-family one Christmas, this has guided me be the woman I am with strong faith in our Creator.
    I am blessed to have been in the presence of you both as Barry did what he loves: Praising our Lord & Savior.
    Thank you for this.
    With Love.
    Kim Burnell & family.
