Dear Jackie, so sorry to hear of your loss; a fine man, your husband. You may remember us us neighbors in Pokfulam HK.

Dear Jackie,

I am so very sorry for your loss - I just learned of Barry's passing and immediately began to reflect on what a kind, intelligent, and giving person he was. I had the great fortune of working with Barry while he served as Chair of the Program Committee at Pacific Pension Institute - he was so very intelligent and articulate, but what made it especially meaningful to work with him was seeing his passion and genuine commitment to the organization. He was an incredible mentor for someone fresh out of school - a role that I think he enjoyed very much - and I count myself lucky to have known him and to have learned from him over those years.

With deepest sympathy,

My condolences on your loss. I made Barry's acquaintance through OECD events, where he was a leader in intellect, in policy, and in wisdom. He was invariably thoughtful and kind. A true mensch.

Words cannot express the heaviness in my heart. Sincere condolences to you and the family. We have lost a fabulous friend.

Love,

Dear Jackie,
I am so very sorry and sad. Words cannot express. My thoughts are with you. I know your heart is broken.
Wonderful Barry! I liked him from the moment I met him, when I was about 16, at dinner at my parents house. We really loved him and will miss him greatly. I know there are many people who will feel the same, because he was a wonderful man who touched many lives. A major loss to his loved ones, his friends, and in his own quiet way, to his country.
We love you. Our condolences to Rebecca, Darren, Annette and the children from us.

Dear Jackie,

we are heartbroken to read your sad, sad information. What a shock. Barry was such an honorable, smart, honest man - fabulous husband, great father and grandfather, a fine man among men. I shall never forget how he took me to "Nicky's Pizza" right after we moved to Larchmont to introduce me to the most delicious pizza in the world. How I appreciate that gesture. So many more as well.
We shall miss him terribly as will all his friends.
Our love to you and your family,
April 02, 2013
Oh Jackie - my heart goes out to you and your entire family - and (as much as anyone outside your family can be) I am devastated with you. Words cannot express how much Barry meant to me - as a friend, adviser, mentor, and sage...not to mention the most witty and adroit sense of humor ever, picking up on every irony and foible.

Although I am not geographically "just around the corner" to be there for you on the spur of the moment, please know that I stand ready and willing to be on hand - no matter what - and I am sure you'll find legions of friends, colleagues and former clients who would be honored to do anything that would be an opportunity to pay tribute to a truly great man, his stalwart partner, and your remarkable family.

With great love and sympathy,
April 02, 2013
Dear Jackie,
We are profoundly saddened by this shocking news as we were simply unaware. On this most difficult day for you and your family our thoughts and prayers are lovingly with you and the kids. Know that had I been in NYC we would have surely been with you!
We both have always adored you and Barry and found him to have been a wise, thoughtful and caring friend and counsel.
May sweet memories, painful in the present bring you comfort, warmth and courage in the future.

In sympathy and abiding friendship,
April 02, 2013
Dear Jackie,
Sending you all our deepest condolence on the loss of dear Barry. He was the kindest, most generous man, a brilliant lawyer and beloved friend. I am so sorry - and we send you and your entire family all our prayers and thoughts.
In friendship, and in loving memory of a truly great person,
April 02, 2013
Dear Jackie,

During this moment of our relentless sadness and dismay concerning the passing of your loving steadfast partner, Barry, husband and father of Darren and Rebecca, and our fine friend....please understand that your family is considered by our family to be the first genuine friends that we had met in Hong Kong so many years ago.

Barry, who was always dutifully busy with family and career, conveyed to our family the presence of mind and care that gave confidence to all around him that everything was calm, right and OK in our worlds - in other words not to worry because Barry was there. Indeed that feeling of reassurance still prevailed when we chatted with Barry during your party last January....you know what I mean, Jackie, that is, the more things change the less they change....such assurance was personified by Barry Metzger.

Jackie we realize that you have been Barry's loving and successful partner during the many interesting and exciting times you and Barry have enjoyed mutually building a remarkable life and unique family together. There are only a few certitudes out there but one is that you, Darren and Rebecca, and their respective families, will continue to excel at lofty levels of performance to emulate the contributions and leadership of Barry through it all.

Jackie - my friendship is yours forever - anything you need or want just ask...moreover we moved to New York City a few month ago so if you just want to talk, say, like in the ol'times, please call.

Love,
