Todd and Family,

Our thoughts and prayers go out to you all at this time. Your Dad was truly a Man of God and has touched more lives than you will ever know. May you find comfort and healing in this. God Bless you all.

Leslie, John, and Todd,
As an attend-church-every Sunday person, I admit to forgetting more sermons than I remember. But Barry spoke directly to me one Sunday morning, engraving God's message directly on my heart.45 years later it still sends chills. I will never forget.
Many blessings to you.

Dear Anderson Family,
I was sorry to hear of Mr. Anderson's passing. I didn't know him well but always remembered his presence at our sporting events. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with your families.

Even though I only met Barry once, I cant tell you how he has impacted my life. I cant explain it really. I learned so much from him in just one afternoon in his living room. We laughed, he told stories, and ran over some of his life as a Reverand. I had prayed so long for Chad to be saved and baptised and for a while it didnt look like it would happen. Then God sent Barry, from out of the blue, and Barry said he would be do the baptism. He did for me and Chad what no one else was...

To John and all his family, I was so sorry to hear about your Dad. I got to know him when you had your terrific accident and you was a patient that I took care of. You probably do not remember me but you and your Dad has always stuck in my mind. My prayers are with you.

Dear Anderson Family:
My prayers are with you at this time of great sorrow. I graduated high school with Barry in 1952; I have some kind memories and I know that your memories will be what helps you through this time.
