Celebrating the life of Barbara Ann Kerns
Thank you for signing Barbara Ann Kerns's Guestbook
Barbara’s family: I'm so sorry for your loss. I went through a similar situation and I was very helped by the hope that I found in the Bible in John 5:28, which says, "Do not amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I am sending you a link with more information on this hope.

Barb will be missed. She was a fun-loving lady, always ready to lend a helping hand to her friends at Towne Baptist. I remember when I had surgery a few years ago, she drove 20 minutes up the road to bring me dinner. A wonderful friend who is now in the arms of Jesus. I'm happy for you Barb yet sad for us. I will see you again one day.
