You got it from your father, it was all he had to give. So it's yours to use and cherish, for as long as you may live. If you lose the watch he gave you, it can always be replaced.
But a black mark on your name son, can never be erased. It was clean the day you took it, and a worthy name to bear. When he got it from his father, there was no dishonor there. So make sure you guard it wisely, after all is said and done. You'll be glad the name is spotless, when you give it to your son.

The righteous legacy of Talmage Dennis Barney will live on because of his life that loved, forgave, and left his fellowman better than he ever found them. He loved his Savior, Jesus Christ, and tried to emmulate Him in thought, action and deed. To know this great man was a treasured gift.

No Empty Beds

No Empty Beds
Once when I was thanking Uncle Dennis for all his generosity he said "You know why I've done all of this, don't you?" In reference to the Barney Homestead at Ranch 13, "So there are no empty beds! I want everyone to have a place." Grandma Clarene Barney always said "No Empty Chairs!" and Dennis worked hard to have "No Empty Beds!"

The Bookmark

Today was a day to remember. T. Dennis Barney has taught us so many things and will continue to teach us still as we remember him.
At the funeral was a sweet book mark that was handed out at the end. I would like to post the poem on it for all to read and enjoy.
"The time to be kind is now, the place to be kind is here. We needn't be told the way to be kind, for the way to be kind is clear. But it's good to pause and remember in the heat of our stress and drive, The very best time to live is while we are still alive. The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others happy simple enough, I fear. But the simple things we are apt to miss as we struggle and fret and strive, forgetting the very best time to live is while we are still alive." In memory of T. Dennis Barney, may we strive to live more as he did and as our Savior would have us live.
