I was fortunate enough to sing for the folks at BLANCO`S last night (8-6-2009) The dream lives on. I never knew Barry until last night. I received an introduction the moment I walked through the door, even though we lost him over two years ago. Country Music lovers should be so thankful to Barry and all the fine folks at Blanco`s.

Barry was my roommate with johnny yelverton at Allen Military Academy on 1964.He was very honest and sincere with all the students, His human quality and spirit of service to everybody, was Barry's presentation's card. I remember Him as a good friend. My sincere condolences to his relatives. Atte Profr.Tirso A. Gonzalez.

So many people have been talking about Barry, he and Blancos are legendary. I didn't go very often & missed him when he wasn't there, the music and crowd always seemed more festive when he was around. My dad was also a doc, when we met I remember a toast he made to "good medicine" as he grinned with a little sparkle in his eye. A friend wrote a song about how she hopes they have guitars in Heaven, wish we'd made it to the service. Another friend just reminded me of how much fun we had with Barry the last time Clay Blaker played, and others we might not see again, and that we should get out more often. My dad, who would not go to funerals, said pay our respects while we're still alive and able! He is leaving mucho many good memories.

I think that I may have been Barry's 1st girlfriend. We met at Lamar during summer school.He was so sweet and endearing even at the age of 15.I had "skipped" a grade,a common practice at the time and probably felt so much more sophisticated than Barry.I wasn't but I'm sure I felt that way.
Barry gave me a beautiful pin for my birthday that I still wear. It's a lovely gold iris or orchid, with a small pearl in the center of the bloom.

I ran into Ernest at the Galleria, years after we had all married. At that time, Barry was doing graduate work in AZ or NM.I'm just sorry I never knew about Blanco's. Otherwise,we would have been there.

With condolences to the DeBakey family,
