Our Inspiration

Christian Gordon Barker 5/6/1993 - 12/29/2007

They say our true colors are revealed when we face adversity. Christian showed us his true colors through his incredible courage, determination, respect, compassion for others, and faithfulness in God. His quiet and sweet nature spoke volumes. I hope he can see how his life and legacy have impacted so many people. He is the driving force behind so much of what we do.
