Not sure what to say?

I am so sorry for your loss. Barry was always so kind to me when I worked at Mercy and it brightened my day to see his smile. I will have a bowl of ice cream in his honor.

Barry (and Cindy) were amazing parents and caretakers of countless kids in the Durango community. They provided a place of love and safety, and made everybody feel welcome and taken care of. My condolences to all of the Hillmer ladies...I'm happy to know that he left you all with a life of love, opportunity, and open hearts. Be well on your journey. Traveling mercies...

Barry was a fellow lover of the game and a worthy opponent at the bridge table. I know the Durango Bridge Club will miss him, but so will all of western Colorado bridge.
