My heart goes out to the Barnes family in the loss of this great Christian woman. She was a friend to my parents, Reid and Corinne Reagan, and a great mother to J.T, Paul, and Anita, as well as an Aunt to some of my Reagan cousins. It's always hard losing a loved one and especially at Christmas time, but I've no doubt, she is with many of her loved ones and awaits the rest of us. Love Sandy Reagan Howard

J T, Paul, and Anita, so sorry to hear about Nelda. She was such a special lady. My Mom and Dad counted her and Dewey Best friends. It is never easy to lose a parent but when it is the last one make it even harder. Know my family is thinking about you all. The song "That Will be a Glad Reunion Day" keep coming to my mind..
