  • Please help the Barber Family

    I am writing this on the behalf of a dear dear friend Georgette Barber and her family. This morning I heard some tragic news, as her husband of 34 years of age, Bryan Barber, passed away in his sleep, apparently either of sleep apnea or an athsma attack. Fortunately it was a very quiet passing and he was not in pain. He leaves behind a very loving wife and 5 kids. All of their kids are members and active participants of the Native American Club that I run locally here in Albuquerque.. Last year I helped his daughters become more actively involved in the Southwestern Powwow Circuit. Some of you may have even met or seen his daughter with me selling food and raffle tickets to raise money for our club during the fall and winter powwows. I am even in the midst of sewing her new southern traditional regalia, as he wanted to see her dance. At our first Childrens' Holiday Powwow, last December, he played 'Santa', in which all the children, includiing elders, enjoyed the gifts he gave. We are mourning such a loving and giving man, who adored each of his children and step-children. He even regarded my son as his own, and my son is very emotional over this loss. The family is in shock but they are strong and loving so they will get through this.

    I am asking you my powwow friends and family for help in assisting this family. They need to know the native american communities across this nation are with them in this time of need. If you would like to send letters or cards of condolence or even donations, please IM me for the address or even phone number.

    They have 5 girls with 2 twins at 2yrs old, 1 at 7, another is 10, and the eldest being 13 years of age.

    At this time the burial services are aimed to be on Tuesday August 22nd or Thursday August 24th.

    I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for anything you can do for this family. I know they will appreciate the graciousness of the community.

    A memorial account will be set up on Monday for the family to help with burial costs, etc. with Wells Fargo, if you would like the bank information, please IM or email me. I will send you an email with all the information.

    I know the family thanks you and I hope, after appropriate mourning time, the girls will come into the circle.

    Respectfully yours,

    Molly Linabah,my son, and
    The Barber Family

    Any responses to this post, I will print and hand deliver to the family.
