  2. Dearest Ellie, I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. That dear sweet Barney always made me smile and lifted my day while working at Gatlinburg Towne Square. I have thought about the two of you often and wondered what you both were doing. From what I read I believe that Barney is in heaven. He was a wonderful, caring, and a happy man. I feel that I was blessed to have known him and you as well. I Loved you both at Towne Square and I still Love You. You and your family will be in my Prayers during this difficult time. Love in Christ, Kathy Hillard
