Last Sunday, in worship, we announced the deaths of two long-time First Unitarian members.
Frank Barbehenn died after a brief time in hospice care. We extend our condolences to his children, Brian and Jaci, and to other family and friends who are grieving this loss. A memorial service is being planned for after the Thanksgiving holiday and information will be shared in our newsletter as soon as a date and time are confirmed.
Glen Barbaras died after a fall at home and then a brief hospital stay. He was enthusiastically telling stories and laughing up until his last day when he fell into a deep sleep and then died. We extend our condolences to his sons, David and Larry and to other family and friends who are grieving. Information on Glen’s memorial service will be shared at a future date, but the service will not be for some weeks to allow out-of-state family to travel.
Be sure to reach out to one another in this season of loss and may our memories warm our hearts and fill us with gratitude for all they shared with us.
