Mrs. Barnes, a lovely lady
Funny in all kinds of ways
Knowing that her love will never fade
Helped us in our times of need
In all of our hearts, she will never leave
She leads us in the right way to go
When she passed, tears here, tears there
To her, no one can compare
Cooked the best collard greens on any given day
When people came, they wanted to stay
Mrs. Barnes, with beautiful brown puppy-dog eyes
Will always stay in our hearts and in our minds forever.
Love, Darron Goudy and Alex Reynolds
