    To the Palelei family,

    Barbara was an amazing woman. She was loving, kind, cheeky and most of all, honest. She would put you in place (if you needed it), give you a hug, just smile or say something encouraging. There’s were no ends to her kindness and ability to care. I will miss spending time with you while watching John play, doing our ministry or just chilling watching a movie and having a coffee and snack.

    Psalm 37: 11, 29

    To the Palelei family,
    Barabara is a beautiful loving friend, l would call in and her and her husband would have a early morning cuppa tea, at a time when l suffered loss they both became family in my heart, a link. Her humour, kindness and love will be missed but not for long. She is now resting with her beloved husband. So l will wait til they rise to sit and have our early morning cuppa and talk about horses. My love forever Jan xxx

    Dear Natalie, even though I didn’t have the privilege of meeting your mum I can clearly see that she was a much loved and beautiful person, given the amazing tributes from family and friends. Your mum obviously raised you to be the loving and kind person that you are and this is a testimony to her character. Your mum has left a legacy of love through you and your family ❌

    My thoughts are with the Palelei family at this sad time…..just know that Barbara was loved by so many and she touched the hearts of all who knew her….she was always ready to lend a hand, was an amazing story teller and a beautiful spiritual sister to so many… sick as she was, there was always time for the ministry, to write letters or go out and get addresses….she was an inspiration….I will miss you dearly sister and look forward to the time when I’ll see you again when all those fallen in death will once again be risen…Acts 24:15
