Dear Cathy, my prayers are with you and the family. I never got to meet Barry, but as the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. I didn’t have to look far to see how happy you both were!

I'm sure saddened to hear of Barry's passing. It was only in the past couple of months that Barry had shared a very inspirational message on Facebook. I replied to him about how much I enjoyed it. Every time I ran into Barry he was always "Barry" with his Sonny Gardner grin and his affable personality.
My prayers and thoughts are with all of my long time Gardner family friends.

Cathy; I didn’t have the privilege of knowing Barry but I do know you & I know that smile that he put on your face, and the love that you already have for the grandchildren. No words to describe the hurt but I know you’ve experienced horrific pain in the past. Love you! #FOREVER19
