  2. Barbara Eakins says:

    I did not know Barbara really well, but we have been in hers and Carl’s home a few times with our mutual friends, Wayne and Doris Keefer. Barbara was always the gracious hostess and a very sweet woman. I always enjoyed visiting with her and Carl. I know she was the perfect minister’s wife always friendly and gracious and helping Carl in any way she could. To die in the Lord is gain for Barbara, but I know her family feels the loss of her companionship on earth deeply. I send my sincere sympathy to her entire family and especially to Carl and Jim whom we knew.
    Yours in Christ Jesus, our Savior and Lord,
    Barbara and Jim Eakins

    I’m saddened to hear of Barb’s passing and will be remembering Carl and the whole family in prayer. I will remember Barb’s shining smile, her kindness and her grace. She loved her family deeply and served the Lord faithfully, doing all she could in the churches. Her death was on the last day of Annual Conference, where I got to greet the retirees at their banquet this year, so I think of many friends and co-workers in the church as I think of her. Her life touched mine and many, many others and the whole family will be surrounded with prayer!

  5. Miranda says:

    I only knew Barbara for a short time, she and Carl were so nice. They brought joy to my mornings. Prayers with Carl and her entire family.

  6. Tom Snyder says:

    Carl, I am so sorry to hear of Barb’s passing. You have cared for and watched over her for many years, and your faithfulness is a testament to the love you shared. Know that our prayers are with you and the rest of the family as you say goodbye to her, in preparation for that reunion which will come one day. God’s blessing and peace fill you in the days ahead.
