Grandmother Barnes,
You taught perseverance by example, fearlessly facing the challenges in your life with a strong and focused spirit. Every one of your children inherited your determination to rise above adversity. That is a legacy you should be proud of.
Your passing has saddened me, deeply, but you lived a full life, worked tirelessly and sacrificed so much during your time here. Now you finally have the rest you so richly deserve. I am comforted by that, even in my grief. I know you are watching over us all and loving us still.
Loving you always,
April Barnes
