    Mrs Barnes and Family, I am so sorry to learn of Barnes’ (as we knew him) passing. I served with him over 40 years ago at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, D.C. I remember Barnes being a humble person and everyone in our office like him and appreciated him. We often joked with him about his Kentucky accent. Please accept my condolences for your loss and know that he was well regarded and loved. Knowing he was active in his church is such a comfort to me because I know he is now enjoying the reality of his salvation in the presence of his Savior. God bless you all...
