Janet, Bob, Jenny & Brian,
We are very sorry for your loss, please remember we are thinking of you.
Barry, from the moment I met you I knew we would be good friends, the way Janet's eyes light up when she spoke of you was such a wonderful thing to experience, there was a lot of first's for her with your relationship, and I will be forever grateful to you because of how you made my best friend feel. The love was undeniable and wonderful. I can never repay you for this. You are such a wonderful person inside and out, and I am grateful for the time I got to spend with you and Janet. It was such a joy to be around you guys. Barn shoes was a blast, we were both so competitive and loved the game. You will forever be in my heart.

Dear Bob, Jenny and Bryan,

When I opened the paper tonight I was in complete disbelief to learn of Barry's passing. It has been over thirty years since I've seen him but I will never forget that smile, the times sitting in your basement watching black and white TV and losing a tooth during a wrestling match on some lawn back on Ormond Dr. Barry was unforgettable and as I still vividly remember a boy from thirty years ago I know his memory will never fade and in thirty more years people will still look back on his life with a smile on their face.
I am so sorry for your loss. As a mother of two sons I can not imagine your sorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. As are my dad's Jim Martin.
My sincerest condolences,
Alison Martin
