Our love is with you and family at this time. We appreciate the faithfulness of the Ballestracci & Barron family in taking care of your Dad. We remember meeting him one time and he was a delightful brother. We know that his wonderful absence will be surely felt. My Dad used to say that there is nothing like a mother's love. I add there's nothing like a father's love. This is where the resurrection hope takes on full meaning. "May you have underserved kindness and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ."
1 Corinthians 1:3
We await your return to us with lots of love.

I am so very sorry to hear about Bro. Barron's passing. This old system of things is so full of sadness. May Jehovah and the entire brotherhood give you comfort.
(Psalm 37:34) Hope in Jehovah and keep his way, And he will exalt you to take possession of the earth.
May Jehovah be with you all, to comfort you and guide you and eventually refresh you.(Psalm 38:21-22) 21 Do not leave me, O Jehovah. O my God, do not keep far away from me. 22 Do make haste to my assistance, O Jehovah my salvation. Psalms 34:15 The eyes of Jehovah are toward the righteous ones, And his ears are toward their cry for help. 17 They cried out, and Jehovah himself heard, And out of all their distresses he delivered them. 18 Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart; And those who are crushed in spirit he saves.
I pray you find comfort and that you find peace within yourselves knowing that he is in Jehovah's hands, and that he made it! He stayed faithful! We will see him again.
All my love, Bobbi
Dear Retha, Myles and sons, We know you feel a great loss. Remember what 1Thessalonians 4:13 says and work hard to be there to give your dear father a big welcome back to life in the Paradise.

Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted Matthew 5:4
May it be a source of inner strength to know that there's a loving God watching over you and that
throughout this time of need He'll stay close by your side. Lesa, your dad will always live on in your heart and the hearts of everyone who loved him. May God Bless you and your family.
I am deeply sadden by his passing and will miss his smile and humor. I offer my prayers and thoughts to the family as you go though this period. May God bless you.
Lesa: Although I did not know your father, I know he was a magnificent man, as he created such a
wonderful and loving individual as yourself. Let your mind be at rest and know that he is in a peaceful place with the Lord. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
The pain of losing a loved one is great indeed. But here's a thought that in time, may help to lessen the pain--"It won't be long at all before we'll be happy and free, rejoicing and declaring how short our wait, compared to all the days ahead when paradise earthwide is restored and good health and happiness will forever be adored." May Jehovah continue always to protect and guide you while you confidently wait for fulfillment of all his promises.
Sincere affection, Carolyn Russell
Always was a pleasant man every time I met him. He will be surely missed.
May God continue to guide and strengthen everyone! Remember to reflect on the memories...his spirit lives on in all that knew him. My heart and prayers go out to Lesa and the whole family. May God bless everyone!
Lesa, My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. Your dad is smiling now that he is in a better place and does not have anymore pain. Remain strong, God will heal your heart.
I want to send heartfelt love to the family of Bro. Barron. Remember, Jehovah will always be with you all and he will certainly make definite arrangements for you to see you loving father again.He promised it. John 5: 28, 29
