Dad, You will be missed very much. I'm sorry that I was locked up and missed spending time with you before The LORD called you home. I will always remember everything You, Big Daddy and Big Momma taught me as a child. I will always know how to plow a field, go fishing, make & drink white lightning and work on cars, (LOL). I'll be there to visit real soon. I know you & mom are partying your butts off. Give her a kiss for me and y'all keep watching over me. With Eternal Love Always, Your Son............Ramon' Barber
