  5. It’s been several years since I’ve seen Uncle Barry, hope he forgives me. But what I can remember if him is he was an all around good guy. He definitely loved his children and Aunt Audrey!! Had a blast with him when we visited him when we were kids. May God hold him tight, and bless him with everything he has, God has a very special person (Uncle Barry) added to his flock. Will miss him greatly and hopefully I will see him again when it’s my time.
