    I would like to offer my deepest sympathy to the family. Remember God’s word, it's a promise that He said He would do for all mankind soon here at Isaiah 26:19 and Revelation 21:1-4. May this bring comfort to your family.

    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.

    What a joy to see the people of a town turn out to pay their respects to a man they never knew. The family was surprised as well, his niece was next of kin and at the graveside she was smiling and said, "I thought there's be 6 or maybe 10 people" when there were about 150. A Gold Star father we served recently came by to pay his respects to another Marine. A young woman pulled up about one minute after the visitation ended and said she wanted to be there but was afraid she couldn't take it as her brother was a Marine we just lost in Afghanistan last year. She said the PGR in Texas served the family well and she was most impressed. Most grateful for the invitation from Corporal Barker's niece and his cousin Tim for letting us be part of this day.
