Celebration of Life

There will be a celebration of her life.

Nov. 7, at 1 p.m. in Inverness, Florida, at Citrus Shrine Club, 468 N. Woodlake Drive.

We will remember her the way our family often gathers for many occasions,

in the midst of good home cookin' so feel free to bring a covered dish to share and enjoy.


Her Journey's Just Begun

Don't think of her as gone away-
her journey's just begun,
life holds so many facets-
this earth is only one. . .

Just think of her as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.

Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.

And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched. . .
for nothing loved is ever lost-
and she was loved so much.

In Loving Memory

Mary "Linda" Barfield
