Remembering your wife and mother, Alma Gwynn, and wishing your family comfort. Mary Frances Turner

So sorry to hear of Alma's death; I know both her family and community will miss her. Memories of growing up with Alma are always filled with laughter because she was easy to laugh and share her joy and cheer with those around her. She was also known in high school for some great practical jokes! The last time I saw her she was still smiling at life; I know she met the Lord with a song! Though I am far away right now, I send my sincere condolences to all the loving family she left behind. God bless you especially during these troubled days.

DEAR BARRETT FAMILY...THE SONG " HELP IS ON THE WAY" HAS ALWAYS BEEN SUCH A SPECIAL SONG FOR ME, BUT NOW IT HOLDS SUCH TRUTH, BECAUSE GWYNN'S HELP CAME FOR HER. SHE HAD SHARED THIS SONG WITH ME YEARS AGO AND SHE WILL NEVER KNOW THE PEOPLE THAT IT TOUCHED, INCLUDING MY MOTHER AND EVERY WHERE SHE SANG THE SONG. WE LOVED GWYNN SO MUCH AND SHE WILL BE GREATLY MISSED. WE DO KNOW SHE IS SINGING ALL OVER HEAVEN TODAY AND WE ARE ENVIOUS OF HER . LOVE TO ALL PHYLLIS AND NEAL PARRISH
