Barbara and her beloved husband and soul-mate, Joseph, shared a promise with each other from a poem by Albert Kennedy Rowswell:
Should you go first and I remain,
One thing I'd have you do:
Walk slowly down that long, lone path,
For soon I'll follow you.
I'll want to know each step you take
That I may walk the same,
For some day down that lonely road
You'll hear me call your name.
On Thursday afternoon, December 9th, with her son Joe by her side, Barbara peacefully slipped from the bonds of her broken tent of human flesh and into the loving arms of her Savior, Jesus Christ. And, after patiently walking that long path for five years, Joseph heard Barbara call his name, and now they forever walk together, with their little son Bruce at their side.
Of God's vast creation, man is the only creature whom he blessed with tears with which to weep, and, as Ecclesiastes teaches us, there is a time to weep and a time to mourn. Today, Barbara's loved ones weep and mourn for ourselves and for the loss of our precious mother, grandma, sister, aunt, and friend. But for Barbara, let us shed no tears. Let us instead laugh and dance and rejoice with the angels as she is welcomed into her Savior's loving arms with the words, "Well done, my good and faithful servant."
Barbara leaves behind sons Joseph, Jr. and Barry Stalnaker, daughter Cheryl (Aaron) Humpherys, and grandson Noah Humpherys. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions may be made to the Presbyterian Home for Children at www.phfc.org.
