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,
