To the family of Delores Barnes,
We received the notice of Delores’ passing this evening.

She was my dear friend while we pastored First Assembly in Lawrence and we have many happy memories of you children also. She was a voice of encouragement and cheer to me and I still have a cook book she gave me

We will be sure to tell our children, Sheri, Steve and Shelly, too, as they knew you all well.

Much love to you all,
Barbara and Darrel Madsen
