Condolences to Mrs. Tessie Barrett & the entire Barrett family. I enjoyed the many Sundays we sat next to each worshiping & joking with you on the front pew at GEBC. Your desire to serve even when I could see you weren't always feeling well inspired me. By the way you cared for the Pastor, members, your wife, & family is why you were only a few men I looked up to. I'm going to miss you my friend. Rest Easy until we meet again.
