Lisa Barge Death, Obituary – First thing this morning, I got the phone call that we all dread, and it was to inform me that my friend Lisa Barge had passed away. I was devastated to hear the news. Sadly, all of us have been affected by something like this at some point in our lives. The fact that I was able to talk to her for a few hours around two weeks ago has provided me with a significant amount of motivation to express my gratitude.
During our interview, we talked about her outlook on life, her love of the great outdoors, her religious views, her family, and the degree to which she was especially proud of her daughter Rachel and her husband Rick. As the thunder and lightning began to come in while we were talking, I assisted her in repositioning herself so that she could view the storm while it was happening.
As we were conversing, she expressed to me how much she enjoyed watching thunderstorms, and just as we were getting into it, the thunder and lightning began to roll in. Throughout the all of her extraordinarily drawn-out fight against cancer, she has never once whimpered or asked, “why me?” She has also never ever complained.
She is a beautiful person to look up to and model after. A large number of people, not only in the agricultural community but in life in general, have been benefited as a result of her strong faith, good attitude, and kind, loving heart. In particular, the farming community. She has served as an example for everyone around her.
Pray for her and her family, and don’t pass up the chance to tell the people in your life who mean the most to you that you care about them and that you love them. She and her family need your support during this difficult time. Please keep her and her family in your prayers.
The words “I love you” were the last words that were said between the two of us on that particular day before I went. I was leaving at that time. I pray that God will grant you eternal rest and that we shall cross paths again someday. You are a good friend.
