Georgia, Donna and family,
My heart is heavy as I pray with and for you as you mourn Barry's homegoing.
I know that you know God makes no mistakes and Barry is home celebrating with our Heavenly Father and all our relatives that are already there,

I love you dearly and am only a phone call away if there is anything I can do.

I credit Barry with saving my life on April 20, 1987. He became a best friend and mentor. Barry was a selfless man who expressed his gratitude for life by giving back what he was given. Barry's example will transcend generations. May his memory be eternal.
My sincere condolences to all of the family.

I was surprised and saddened to see Barry's name and picture in the Obituary page of the Morning Call today. I immediately said "I know this guy." We played football together at Cal U 1969-70 era. I had no idea we lived only 70 miles apart or I might have tried to look him up. I live in Bethlehem. We lived in the same dorm for awhile and as I remember we got along well and had some laughs together. I remember taking him home once and his mother making me dinner. He was one heck of a football player, a very nice guy and I'm sure an excellent counselor. Again, you have my sympathies.
