Hello Fisher Family,
I am sorry to see news of Barry's passing, I have many memories that make me smile and laugh and those are the things to think about. Diane, I wish I could have kept in touch better. But here is thanking you and Barry for wonderful years and memories at Chateau Village. I enjoyed talking with Barry out in the front of the apartments and keeping you guys up on Sat. night. Barry was a friend to me and will not be forgotten.
Take care all.

Dear Fisher Family,
We are the wife and daughters of the late Barron Goodson, Barry's cousin. You recall that Barron's late mother Mary Fisher Goodson and Oscar are siblings. We are privileged to remain a part of the Fisher family with which we have enjoyed many family reunions at the old homeplace along with Barron. Though we cannot be with you in person tomorrow to share our condolences and the celebration of a life well-lived, due to family obligations, time, and distance, we will be with you in thought and prayer. There is a permanent hole in our hearts and homes though we "grieve not as those who have no hope."
Sharon, Summer, and Sunni Goodson
