My heart goes out to the friends and family of Mrs. Bates. Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things to deal with. I would like to leave the family with a comforting scripture in 1 cor 15:26. Soon we can look forward to a time when 'death will be a thing of the past.'
Ms. Barb has our family fondly called her was a blessing for us. We will always remember and thank God for how well she and Freddie took care of our children. Rest in Peace Ms. Barb.
