On behalf of the entire Philburn family, I would like to Thank all of the friends and family, that were able to be with us and those who were there in our hearts. As I told several of my friend this was not a club people look forward to joining. It's never easy to accept. But all the members, who have lost someone, all feel the same pain and we share the love for each other a little deeper and no amount of separation can lessen that love. North, South, East or West no matter where we are physically our hearts are together. Barry' daughters, Jennifer and Christina want us to "Live like Barry". Barry's Mother wants us to also "Love like Barry". He always put his whole heart into everything he did. Please remember our "Big Brother". Thank You

I cannot begin to tell you what a disbelief I am in Barry is now a True Warrior Angel. He was the Greatest friend I had Always made me laugh when I worked at Coaches Corner I was confronted one time by a customer and asked me just what do I do? So Barry and I made this thing up Just What is Your Job? We had so many memories I cannot begin to start. He was a Family man and Loved them Dearly Always taking of his Mom and whoever he Could. I Miss him Already

Barry will be deeply missed by me and many, many others. We had such fabulous times together watching the games at Coaches, singing and "cutting up" with the Oldies, fishing...so many wonderful memories. I feel blessed that he considered me a friend as I considered him a friend. May he rest in peace now.
