My sincere condolences go to Barbara's family. We all look forward to the day when all those in the memorial tombs will hear Jesus voice and come out (John 5:28,29). Until that day, may the God of all comfort grant you peace (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) while your fond memories of her bring you joy.

My sincere condolences and thoughts are with the Kemp Family during this difficult time. God understands the depth of your grief and assures his comfort to help sustain you; Psalm 94: 18, 19. As you reflect on the beautiful memories made and precious time spent, may God provide the strength and comfort needed to endure.

Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.

To the Kemp Family, Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Barbara and I were very close co-workers at Alt Ed, that later became very close friends(sisters). I will miss our weekly talks, but I can rest assure that she is no longer suffering and is totally free now. I am sadden because I have lost the presence of my dear sister here on this side, But I rejoice knowing that being absent from this earthly vessel denotes being present with the Lord. God Bless you all.

I am so sorry to hear about Barbara\'s death. She and I worked together at OCPS, many years ago, will always remember that beautiful smile.
