"To the family:
“There is an appointed time for everything, A time for every activity under the heavens: A time for birth and a time to die; A time to plant and a time to uproot what was planted; A time to kill and a time to heal; A time to tear down and a time to build up; A time to weep and a time to laugh; A time to wail and a time to dance; A time to throw stones away and a time to gather stones together; A time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to search and a time to give up as lost; A time to keep and a time to throw away; A time to rip apart and a time to sew together; A time to be silent and a time to speak A time to love and a time to hate; A time for war and a time for peace.” - Ecclesiates 3:1-8.
May you have more times of "healing", "laughing", "dancing", and "loving" than “weeping” and “wailing” with each passing year; and may cherished memories keep Ms. Barbara Ann forever alive in your hearts.
One day very soon, you will experience a time of perfect happiness and everlasting peace as you welcome her back to life!...... "When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice: ‘Lazʹa·rus, come out!’ The man who had been dead came out…...Jesus said to them: ‘Free him and let him go’’”.....John 11: 43, 44. May meditating on these verses of scripture comfort you."
