Celebrating the life of Robert "Robbie" Barker
Thank you for signing Robert "Robbie" Barker's Guestbook
Oh my goodness! Robbie, Larry and Anne lived next door to us in Olney Mill for several years that we were there. I hid in Robbie's closet once when his mom and dad came home and he wasn't supposed to have anyone over. He was so young! Sorry for your loss. Heather Myers (Wright)

My sincere condolences to the entire family. I am sorry for your loss. There are hardly any words to find or say that may bring you comfort at your time of loss. Few things cause more heartache and stress than the death of a loved one. Below a link to an article based on the Holy Scriptures. In this article of the Awake, comfort and help for those who are grieving. (Hosea 13:14 From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; From death I will recover them. Where are your stings, O Death? Where is your destructiveness, O Grave...)?
