Hello to the Barclay boys. This is Tammy Duffield. Your former Brownell teacher, Brian, and fellow MSU Spartan football fan. Sarah and I are shocked and so sorry to hear about your father. I'll remember his warm, infectious smile. And, I enjoyed seeing you and your dad from time to time at Spartan Stadium. You are in my thoughts.
