Irmie & Family,
I just stumbled upon this sad information. Thank you for being such fine friends to my mom & dad. "Ron & Irmie" will always be in the threads of my life - all those card games, parties & picnics. I still have cards & notes you sent to my Mom even after 45+ years of moving half-way across the country. May God grant you the same peace and comfort of friends that you have shown to us. Ron

My prayers for Mrs. Barnhart, Ronda, Laurie, Lisa, and Fred-- My condolences for your loss. May God give you peace, knowing that Mr. Barnhart, a very respected, loving, Christian man is with our Heavenly Father. I cherish the fond memories of our childhood and seeing your Father as part of those memories. Love to you all.-- Doreen

What good memories I have of the whole Barnhart Family! Living just a block from the Barnhart home on Rudisill and walking to and from Bethlehem with any or all of the 3 sisters, I had many occasions to interact with Mr. & Mrs. Barnhart. Both were always so gracious and kind! I think of them whenever I pass the old homestead. I know you will all miss Ron so much! May you each experience God's loving embrace whenever you think of him.

Ron was the finest father-in-law any son-in-law could have ever hoped for. I never heard him say one unkind word to anybody or make a negative comment about anybody, ever. He was an outstanding role model for his entire family. I will miss him deeply, but take tremendous comfort in knowing that he was a Christian.

Ron was one of the finest men I had ever met. I was 6 when they got married. I stayed at Sophie's house and there was a very bad storm that night. I got to dance with Irmie. I thought they were a prince and princess.
So many happy times in my life were going to Ft. Wayne. The relatives were always loving. I stilt think of going there is part of trip to Heaven.
Love, Bud and the family.
May God Bless.
