    To the Barfield family, I would like to express my sincere heartfelt sympathy towards your loss of this loved one. At this time it is extremely helpful to talk to God in prayer. The Bible says: “Throw your burden on Jehovah (God), and he will sustain you.” read Psalm 55:22 and 2 Corinthians 1: 3, 4. Prayer is not just an emotional crutch; it is real communication with the God of all comfort.
