    Barry I don't want to say goodbye. You have been such a great friend over the years. Even when I know I'll have to say goodbye, it won't erase the memories. I'll share one memory I have is when you had your BSA Lightning motorcycle and we road down...  more

    Barry's courage, grace and good humor in facing the end of his life is an inspiration. Listening him talk about his perspective on the world is like standing on top of a mountain and seeing for miles in all directions. I feel very lucky to have known him.
