I was surprised to see no other messages. I first met Barry in 1955 when my Mom went back to work. Barry's Mom babysat me. Barry & I were just 5 years old & we became fast friends. He was a very sweet boy and obviously a very wise & successful adult. To the family: May your happy memories help you through this sad time.
