    friends. I knew Barry from school. We became really good friends in Mary B. Erskine elementary 5th grade. we stayed friends until I lost touch with him in high school. when I heard about his passing it hurt me even though I had not spoken to him in yrs. All the years I knew him he was one of the best men and friends ive met in life; we were just kids back then he was the kínd of person who did the right thing and would stick up for any one he saw being mistreated in any way, yup i saw him stand up to more than a few cowards bullying the little guy and he didnt use violence he just let them see what dicks they were being and would make them apologize! Haha and they always would. I always respect him for being a stand up guy like that and ive sat & ate at tables with some tough guys to say it nicely im not proud of the mistakes that placed me there but Ive paid my dues owed to my society for my mistakes my point is just that Barry has the respect & love from some people in low places or that once was. Ive changed my life & am very happy all the good & bad & good times & how we learn from make us who we are. Im blessed to have had Barry as a friend my condolences to his family for their loss to his children know that your father was always a brave man and he always had a big smile im sure glad i have this chance to say how much i will always miss his friendship. With love to all our fallen brothers & sisters god bless u all.
