To the family of Mrs. Ruby Lila G. Barnes: Please accept my sincere condolences. Although she has completed her earthly journey, please be assured that Jehovah God does not take delight in the death of anyone (Ezekiel 18:32). He promised that there will be a resurrection of both righteous and unrighteous (John 5:28-29). Soon He will eliminate the enemy death, and the human family will live in a peaceful paradise Psalm 37:11-29. May you be comforted in knowing your loved one is resting safely in His limitless memory.

Mrs. Ruby was a kind and gentle spirited person, full of love. She had a little spunk in her personality and a great sense of humor. She was generous with her time and helped in any way possible. My granddaughters and grandsons alike loved her. Mrs. Ruby, my dear friend, you are truly missed. May you rest in peace and may your family find comfort.
