I will never forget your faithfulness to 5am prayer on Thursday mornings and your stories over coffee in the mornings following prayer.
You are a mighty prayer warrior!!!!
The Barber family knows how to make people feel welcomed and loved in any situation.
Your love and devotion to your wife I will never forget and your love for your family is something we can all learn from.
No words are needed for your devotion to Jesus Actions speaks louder than words.
