Sorry for your loss, I have great memories of both your parents, your dad’s laugh and your mother’s warm and welcoming smile. When I read this I was awash with images of card games, practical jokes and good food that as very young fella I enjoyed at the Range. Your mom was a kind lady with lots of love to share, my condolences to you all.

Dear family
My deepest condolence. I have fond memories of when we would come up on the summers to visit. Dad “Roger” loved visiting your parents when we, the Wyman family, came up. Andrew and I were young, but I do have fond memories of Auntie Bessy and Uncle Alex.
My sincere condolences.
Love,
Jennifer

Hello Donna, Dorothy, Patty and Shelley,

I was sorry to hear last week that Aunt Bessie was not well. As we all have been saying, an end of an era of Bartons.
Uncle Alex and Aunt Bessie were such a big part of our trips to the Lower Range church and cemetery as a child. And in later years I looked forward to having a chat with Aunt Bessie every summer in Minto.
I pray that God’s peace will be with you as adjust to life without Mum here.
