Great Grandpa Barney

Esther and Miles Barney along with Vick and Val (not sure which one's which.)
Grandpa Barney the jokester. I missed most of the funeral because I was chasing Kaisey all over creation. I did however witness the bat that was in the light trying to get out. Did you have a hand in that joke grandpa? Anyhow...I was very sad that I missed the funeral, and then I stayed in the car during the graveside service because I finally got the cranky baby to sleep. I began thinking of my own grandpa as well as Grandpa Barney. I noticed one of the Soldiers standing there, and realized that he had a bugle, and was going to play Taps. I thought to myself, "I hope I can hear him in the car." Only a few minutes after that...I heard a knocking on the driver side door. I wondered what it was, so I listened again. Sure enough I heard the knock again. I opened the door to see what was hitting the door. There wasn't anything there, however when I opened the door I realized that the bugle was playing. Take it how you will....but I believe it was Grandpa Jokester Barney.
Before the service Trent's cousin Mandy put together an envelope for the family to donate money if they wished to Grandma Barney. I went out to the car to get my checkbook, and Abbi wanted to come with me. She took $10 out of her wallet for Grandma. I'm so proud of her.

We love and miss you! I will always cherish the beautiful jewlery that you made just for me!


Kaisey kept going up to Grandma Barney and giving her lots of loves.
