Friday, Kim, Robin, and family.....my memories of the fun times on Maywood include Barry and all of you. He used to tease us kids in such a lovingly gruff manner.....and we all enjoyed it! I am betting he kept his lively personality through the years. He clearly loved you all! I hope your memories will eventually bring some happiness. I will keep you in my prayers.
