Memorial Book
The Christian creed states " I believe in the resurrection of the body" Resurrection means that we will have bodies.God intended for our bodies to last as long as our souls. In the New Earth, this will be so. Resurrected bodies are not intended to just float in space, or to flit from cloud to cloud. They call for a NEW EARTH on which to live and work, glorifying God.from Heaven by Randy Alcorn

This memorial website was created to remember a gentle and beautiful man - Paul Barnard. who was born in South Africa on January 13, 1967 and passed away on August 4, 2007. You will live forever in our memories and hearts. With love from all your family and friends.

   all the treasured moments we hold close to our hearts







We couldn’t have known that morning

God was going to call your name

In life we loved you dearly

In death we do the same

It broke our hearts to lose you

But you did not go alone

For parts of us went with you

The day God called you home

You left us with peaceful memories

And your love is still our guide

And though we can not see you,

We feel you by our side

Our family chain is broken

And nothing seems the same

But as God calls us, one by one

                             The chain will link again




I  said "God, it hurts so much!"

And God said, " I know."

I said, "God, I cry a lot."

And God said, "That is why I gave you friends."

I said, "God, I am so depressed."

And God said, "That is why I gave you loved ones."

I said,"God, MY loved one died."


I said "God, it is such a loss."

And God said, "I saw MINE nailed to a cross."

I said, "God, but your loved one lives."

And God said, "So does yours."

I said, "God, where are they now?"

And God said, "Mine is on my right and yours is in the light."

I said, "God, it hurts."

and God said, "I know."

               When Tomorrow Starts without Me


When tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not here to see;

If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me;

I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today,

While thinking of the many things we did not get to say.

I know how much you love me, as much as I love you,

And each time you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too;

But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,

That an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand

And said my place was ready in Heaven far above,

And that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love.


But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye,

For all my life, I’d always thought I didn’t want to die.

I had so much to live for and so much yet to do,

It seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.


I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad

I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday, I thought, just for a while

I’d say good-bye and kiss you and maybe see you smile.


But then I fully realized that this could never be;

For emptiness and memories would take the place of me.

And when I thought of worldly things that I’d miss tomorrow;

I thought of you, and when I did, my heart was filled with sorrow.


But when I walked through Heaven’s gates, I felt so much at home.

When God looked down and smiled at me, from his great golden throne,

He said, “This is eternity and all I’ve promised you,

Today for life on Earth past but here it starts anew.

I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last,

And since each day’s the same, there’s no longing for the past.


So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart,

For every time you think of me, I’m right here in your heart.










 Goodbye Daddy

I always took for granted,
what I thought I'd never lose.
Because I never thought it would happen,
until I heard the dreaded news.

They say you were chosen for his garden,
His preciously hand picked bouquet.
"God really needed him,
That's why he couldn't stay."

I think of you, and shed my tears
I wonder who, will still my fears.

I  miss and love you, can't you see
I wish to hold, and talk with thee
So many things, I did not say
And now you've gone, so far away.

Your memories remain, inside my heart
My soul it seems, is torn apart

Saying goodbye is never easy,
It's the hardest thing to do.
But what hurts me even more
Is not the chance to say it to you.

So today, Jesus, as you are listening
in your home above;
Would you go and find my dad,
And give him all my love!

The Dictionary defines:

SUN -     "Center of the planetary system"

              "Warm and Luminious"

FLOWER -   "To bloom, to reach the best stage"

               "the finest example"

Paul, for your family you were the center of their solar system

for your friends you luminated our lives with your warmth and kindness

You reached the best stage in your life and then left... and the

emptiness without you is a constant reminder about the love, light and

laughter you brought to everyone.

You will continue to live in our memories and thoughts of you

will always warm our hearts
