Meet Barry Board Members Photo Gallery Links

One evening Barry, Cathy and Whitney were sitting outside on their patio.  Whitney was in her daddy's lap and they were watching the most beautiful sunset.  They started talking about how God is the most talented artist they had ever known and they marveled at the beauty in the sky.  Barry told Whitney that when he got to heaven he was going to ask God if he could help paint the sunsets so when he died, every time she looked at the sunsets, she would know he was in heaven with God.  Three weeks later, Barry was dead.  

While we know that our God certainly doesn't need any help painting His sunsets, it puts a smile on our faces every time we see one.
