I was an intern under Dr. Barness in 1974. If it had not have been for his help I would have left my training program at U.S.F. because of physical and sleep deprivation. He was truly one of those special educators who know how to influence students' lives in special ways. I will miss him!

He called my late husband "Charlie Brown," and therefore I was Mrs. Brown. He wondered why women, and then psychiatrists, should go to medical school, and this was teasing. He was always respectful, and accurate with a water pistol.

Dr. Barness was a favorite of our Class of 1963 at Penn. He was so bright and quick. When one of us poor medical students came up with a diagnosis on rounds, he would say,"that's 99th on my list." I'm so glad he lived a long and fruitful life.

So very sorry to have found you in this way after many years living across the Bay from you. A long way from Morgantown. My condolences, Enid.

I knew he was not well, but am still deeply saddened by Dr. Barness' passing. I always counted him as a friend, a colleague, a mentor, and my chairman of Pediatrics during my years with him in the early 1980s. He saved mu mother's life years ago by simply recommending a cause for her illness by means of a telephone call suggestion. That was Dr. Barness as usual to the rescue. He told me once that a Snicker's Bar a day kept the doctor away. May he rest in peace. I will never forget him.
