What an amazing and beautiful woman. How truly blessed you all were to have known her and had her in your lives. This obituary would have no doubt made her proud. May she RIP in paradise. God bless all of you in this difficult time. Remember if the Lord brings you to it, he will bring you through it. Just keep the faith.

I did not know Mrs. Barbara Bryant Havens. However, after reading her obituary, I felt as if I had known her as a friend. I usually don't read obituaries. It was something about this one that just drew me in. I would like to give the family my condolences. The loss of a wife, mother, sister, daughter is always hard. Harder yet, is that she was a grandmother. Peace be unto you and may each one of you always feel the warmth of her memories. God bless you.

The words, her door was always open, were coined for Barbara. I am so sorry for your loss. Barbara was a wonderful neighbor and I am fortunate to have known her. May her memory be a blessing to her children, grandchildren and many friends. You are so very loved, Barbara.

I've never seen so many messages. I didn't know Barbara. However, after listening to her obituary, I wish I had. That's what I call a beautiful obituary. I hope this starts people writing their own obit and making it as good as this one written for Barbara.

I feel your memories of such a special person, will help you through the tough times. Remember her with a smile on your face and a song in your heart.

A Stranger,


We send our deepest sympathy to Tom, John, and Parker and all her family. Barbara was a wonderful friend to our family, especially to our son John. Both of our sons became fast friends when they attended Columbus Academy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you!!!

John, Tom, Michaella, Beau, Nola, Willow and Auntie Parker too - we are sending you all our strength to bear this loss and remind you . . . "You know that place between sleep and awake, that place where you still remember dreaming?" That's where she loves you all from now. That's where she will be waiting.
All our love

Dear Parker,
My deepest condolences on the loss of your mom. I remember her coming to CSG to take you home and she was always helpful, joyful , and delightful. It was lovely getting to know her during your Lower School years.

Dear John,
I send my sympathies to you and your family during this difficult time. Your mom would always make the room shine when she arrived at CSG.

Thinking of you,
Linda Resch

Parker, I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. I enjoyed my conversations with her - not only when you were in school but also in recent years when she would come to the cafeteria for lunch. Much love to you and your family.

Thom and Havens family, Dad used to talk about how wonderful Barbara was but I never realized how beautiful she was!, I know through it all you all remained close. I am sorry for your loss. A void exists.
