I was so sorry to hear of the passing of our long time neighbor! I told Jodi she looks just like him. He will ALWAYS be in your hearts as he will ours. Barry, you will be missed, but I know you wouldn't leave heaven! Debbie, Jodi and Brittany you are in our prayers just seems too young. But Barry is with the Lord, and if we know Him, we will join Barry again soon! Love to you all! Praying for all of the family during this difficult time.
