You have my deepest sympathy. I know what you are going through. My mother passed away on the exact same day and of the very same illness. Effi and my mother, Marie, are no longer suffering such pain. They are free and watching us as angels from above.

To Ms. Effi Barry's Family:

Everyone will remember her kindness and that beautiful smile; Ms. Barry will always be a part of you, because she remains in your hearts.

Hold your heads up high because you now have another guardian angel watching over your family. It is difficult now; but seek comfort in knowing that she is in a better place than any of us right now. Give thanks to God for the opportunity that was given for everyone that came in contact with her to know the importance of giving respect and honor to a beautiful black queen that stayed strong regardless of the obstacles thrown her way. No longer is there a need for sorrow, because she is rejoicing in Heaven.

It was my joy to know Effi, we met regarding our interests in travel and were friends. Effi left a great legacy of which you can always be proud. She helped others in many ways as she traveled along her way.

It was my pleasure and good fortune to have known such a sweet lady as Effi. I enjoyed hearing the stories of her friendship with my sister Nancie Purdie and all of their escades while they were in college. Effi exemplified the word "Lady". She was so special. I shall never forget the time and energy she showed my daughter when she was trying to decide on a college selection. Effi talked candidly with her when we visited Hampton Univ. and it helped my daughter tremendously. Our prayers go to her mom and Christopher. You had a wonderful daughter and mother. May God continue to bless both of your lives.
