Humbled By Her Words

Losing our son was the hardest thing we could ever live through. Yet God has placed  amazing relationships in our lives as a result of who Ryan was. We have been blessed with the love and support of those who loved him. Freedom honored us with her words and her love. The gift of our Ryan keeps blessing us even after his death.

Barb and Ron Barber-
A very happy new years to you. I have but one wish for you both for 2012. I pray that God gives you back 10 fold the amazing love, hapiness, and strength that you have given out to everyone that knows you. I have never in my life met two people with hearts as big as yours. You always put others first, even when the shadows seemed to linger in your life, you have always been kind, honest, and welcoming. You two have something special inside you, something amazing that radiated not just from Ryan but from all the barber family. You have put your fingerprint on the hearts of those around you and I am so PROUD to call you FAMILY. may God bless you and yours this new year!

love you always



  1. That letter from Freedom is a beautiful tribute to you two and to Ryan.

  2. What a beautifully written tribute to both you and the son you raised.

    There are just no words to express how very sorry I am for ya. My heart goes out to ya as a mother and blogger.

    My prayers are with ya sweetie.

    God bless and may you have a beautifully peaceful day.

  3. Hey darlin', I just wanted to thank you for your visit and hoppin' on my blog. I sure hope ya'll enjoy the ride.

    I try to get a post up every seven to ten days...most the time I make it but the Ponderosa is a busy place and 'stuff' happens. 'Just sayin'.

    Ya know I spent my summers with my Grandmother in Albuquerque (I just love to spell it) when I was a young chicklett. 'Love it!!! I still have an Aunt and Cousins livin' there.

    God bless and in the words of that wacky old Granny Clampett, "ya'll come back now, ya hear!!!"

    Have a glorious day sweetie!!! :o)

  4. Hello from Kansas.
    May God always comfort you.

    Appreciate your kind words over at homehaven,
