It is amazing how time flies by. When I am at the ranch in the afternoon and see the wind blowing through the trees, I know those are angels guiding our lost loved ones. It makes me happy and sad at the same time. Keep an eye out for my Dad as he has passed on too. He always loved seeing old cars and the pictures of the builds at the shop. Bless you bro.

Hummingbird pray
As I sit in heaven and watch you everyday,
I try to let you know with signs I never went away.

I hear you when you’re laughing, and watch you as you sleep.
I even place my arms around you to calm you as you weep.

I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home.
So I try to send you signs so you know you are not alone.

Don’t feel guilty that you have life that was denied to me.
Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.

So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free.
Then I know with every breath you take
You’ll be taking one for me. Never forgotten

Mark, it's been 11 years today that we lost you and it's still beyond belief. Know that we miss you terribly. I think about you all the time. Your Nana left us on January 27th, look for her, she'd love one of your smooches .
Love you always, PatsyXXOO

Your Nanna passed yesterday, I know you know, but your mom, text a nice picture of her to me. I'm going to take that picture, and your picture, and do what we do to honer your lives

January 22, 2023

I know you'r watching over Nanna, I hope she's comfortable, I know your moms doing her best. I feel we already said our good buys. She's a great person, and I hate what's going on. She use to kiss me on the lips every time she seen me. That's how I'll remember her.

Mark, of course I'm thinking of you this weekend but I think of you often always. It's hard to wrap my mind around it being 10 years since you were taken from us. I will admitt that now memories of you bring me more smiles than tears. That doesn't mean that there aren't times that my heart breaks wide open and tears flow with the actuality of never seeing you again or the incredible injustice surrounding you being taken from us. You will always and forever hold a place in my heart. You will always be forever missed.

10 birthdays without you. I can only imagine what life would be like with you here with your girls Evelyn & Mae. You 38, Evelyn 14, Mae 13 time has gone by but still seems like yesterday.
I look back on memories with love, love that will be within my heart for eternity.

Always loving & missing you.

Memorial Birthday. It still blows my mind that you died so young. You will always be remembered and not forgotten by those of us who miss you. I can't imagine how amazing your life could have been if just given the chance. May God watch over you and keep you for whatever is next for us. May God bless your family and friends who are in sorrow for the loss of you

Hi Mark! 10 birthdays without you here with us, it's still devastating. I think about you all the time and such a big piece is missing in all of us. Happy Birthday Mark Barger, you are loved and missed so much. Your Mom stays strong waiting for the day she will see Evelyn and Mae again. We will rejoice the day that happens, I know it's coming.

Unbelievable that it's been 10 years. I guess that no matter how much time passes your death will always be fresh in my mind.
Still haven't seen or heard from Evelyn or Mae. Wow! they are 13 & 14 now. I hope all is well with them. 
You still hold a special place in our hearts, and you are missed every day.
Love you Always,

It has been 10 horrible years of emptiness and pain. Not a day goes by that I don't think of Mark. I just keep waiting for him to walk in the door just like I thought he always would. So many memories missed out on. What keeps me strong is the thought of seeing Evelyn and Mae Mae. So many memories playing with the girls and pushing them in their wagon. How the girls would get so excited when Mark got home from work. I miss him so very much.
February 18, 2022

You said it just like it is Tommy. Thank you. We all miss Mark and the girls every single day, I hope the girls are inquisitive like you mentioned, it would be so wonderful for Marcia and Evelyn and Mae.
February 17, 2022
February 17, 2022
Wow, it's been 10 years since that tragic day. Evelyn and Mae should be coming up on 13 and 14. That's some pretty inquisitive years, I hope they know their grandma still lives in the same house that they grew up in, and still has the same phone number. It would mean so much to all of us to hear from them, especially their grandma. I wish there was some way we could tell them how much their LOVED, and MISSED. And of course you too Mark

Wow,10 Christmases. That's a lot of life missed, what a shame. One bullet from a jealous nut took it all away. Again what a shame. We all miss you and talk about you often and the happy days. I still hear from people you touched, and how saddened they are, actually it ruined them.....

Hi Mark! It's that time of year again, Christmas is in 5 days, this is the 10th one we haven't had you here with us, you are in our hearts. No word on Evelyn and Mae YET!! Your Mom keeps waiting for that day along with the rest of us. You are so missed Mark. . .all the time!!! We all love you. Let me tell you, your Mom is the strongest person I know. Oh, Karen moved to Kentucky and she's very happy.
Love you always,

Mark,
For Father's Day your Aunt Patsy and I took Uncle Stephen for a picnic at the cemetery where Grampy is buried. It was a nice picnic but I can't help thinking of all that you are missing as the Father of Evelyn & Mae. Wondering what could have been. I pray they are doing well and hope to see them someday.
Love you and miss you always.

Hi Mark, we lost you 9 years ago, it still seems unbelievable you may not be with us right now but you are alive in our hearts and deeply missed all the time. I have memories of that smile of yours, such a great one. We are all still shattered and will always be. Haven't had any contact with Evelyn and Mae yet but know it will happen we just don't know when. I love you Mark but I hate February 18. Just know you will never be forgotten and always missed and loved so much. Lots of love to you. PatsyXXOO

His Life
December 19, 2018

2/18/2012: Mark Ray Barger was taken from us too soon. He is survived by his daughters, Evelyn Ray Barger and Marina Mae Jr. Barger, his mother Marcia Barger, his two sisters, Danielle Barger and Karen Barger, and numerous friends and extended family members.
Mark was a generous person who would do anything for his family.  He was passionate about carrying on his father's love for old cars, and was proud to be from Clairemont.  He made such progress in his life.
His memory will be with us forever to cherish.

Well another Christmas passed without you and it's the first year that Nana has been gone.  I went to Loni's with Tommy for Christmas. I know you've been at their gatherings before and you fit right in!
I do hope that Evelyn, Mae & Celesta had a good Christmas. Although it's been years since I've seen them I still miss them and wish they were part of our lives. I’m often asked how many grandchildren do I have. I quickly say “five granddaughters” then a moment later I feel another crack in my heart for Evelyn and Mae haven’t been part of my life. So missed, so loved.
All my Love,
Mom

Your Nana

January 27, 2023
Nana left this world today, she was getting close to 94 years old. She is now at peace.  I told her to look for you and I hope you are there to greet her.
She always loved seeing you on your way to work when she was out on her morning walks and throw you a kiss (many kisses throughout the years). Up until she started getting ill she would never remove her tear drop pendant with a bit of your ashes in it.
You were always close to her heart. 
You are truly loved & missed.
I Love you, 
Mom
