Thank you Lord for giving Tom such a full & wonderful life, please now take care of Helen.
While it may be a bit unusual to sign the guest book as a family member, I was taken completely by surprise that it even existed on-line and thank everyone who signed this from the bottom of my heart. The stories, memories and words of encouragement are truly uplifting. Again, thank you all for taking the time to sign this.
Dr. Thomas Barrett was my first dentist while growing up in Citrus Heights. I saw him at his dental office from elementary school all the way through my teens. He was always kind and I still remember getting a lollipop for being a good patient before leaving his office. He treated my Father Gene, Mother Marie, and my two sisters, Karen and Carla Bergkamp. If I remember correctly, Helen was the receptionist/office manager back then? I still remember what the office looked like. A block building with a low profile. It was a very nice professional looking building. My sincere condolences to his wife Helen and family.
Kathy and I had a lot of good times at Helen and Tom's. Both at their home and at their cabin in the mountains. I had many crowns and bridges made by Tom. My dentist called my bridge a "Hollywood" bridge. He was a good guy and will be sorely missed. Out sympathy to Helen and his family.

Went out and fished some of my dad's old musky lures, I know tom used to fish muskies in wi with my dad though I never fished with him, we always talked about fishing when we met. I would like to think that wherever you go when this life ends that there are lakes full of fish and forests full of game.
I remember Dr. Tom as a very talented dentist in Green Bay. He did several gold crowns for me while I was in high school. I still have them and have received compliments on their quality from other dentists in Milwaukee, Massachusetts, and back in Green Bay. Sorry to lose such a great and gifted cousin. Sorry, Charlie Apple

Thinking of you and your family during this difficult time.
Spent much time in Peshtigo growing up with the Barrett cousins. Tom was an excellent athlete, and in particular enjoyed watching him box and play football. Many good memories. All our sympathy to Helen and the family. Cousin Robert and Mary Jean Apple
Dear Dan, Brian, Rob,and Barrett Family, I'm sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Take care.
Aunt Helen and my cousins,
Our sincere condolences to you all. We have not forgotten our visit with you in California or the time I spent in a fishing boat, here in Wisconsin, with uncle Tom. We are thinking of you.

Although I was 5 years younger than Tom,
I remember him as always being fun to be around. He shared stories sometimes with me about his schooling. We were able to visit with him and his family A couple times in Calif. As Mary wrote we had a couple small family re-unions in Nevada. He also played football in Peshtigo. If I rememeber right he was a pretty good player.
I was saddened when I heard of his passing.
As his cousin Mary, I have many happy memories of our childhood get-togethers. I have a momento of a slight scar on my face which he gave me after I smashed his kite. Though we hadn't seen much of him in these later years, we did see him at a Barrett cousins reunion a few years ago and we had a wonderful time. It's hard to believe he is gone, leaving me now as the oldest Barrett family member.
Helen, and all the family, you have our sympathy and prayers.
Cousin Mary and Bernie
May your memories of the wonderful times you shared with your loved one comfort you and your family, today and always.
Aunt Helen, Dan, Brian, Rob, Neil.....My sincere condolences across the miles to you. I have happy memories of Uncle Tom. Even going far back as Green Bay. I always cherished your visits to us too. I loved his dry wit, his generous, giving nature. I think of him often when I am near Peshtigo and going to Lambeau Field for games. What a beautiful legacy he leaves to you and your children. I pray for God's peace to be with all of you during this time. May your sorrow now , quickly turn to thinking and remembering him and let it bring smiles to all of you soon! I so wish I could be there with all of you.
He led an exemplary life of hard work and dedication to family. May the Lord receive him with open arms.
