Barry, our relationship was on and off for decades. At times we were very close, and you were a wonderful person. We shared many amazing times together. You were kind, generous and loved animals. You had strong demons that you struggled to overcome, but when you were going good, you were a GREAT person (One of the Best). Like most relationships we had our ups and downs and in our case I know we had mostly ups. Last night I watched four episodes of Gravesend. You’re in S1 E4 at 0.01:09. I love your facial expression. Pink Floyd become my favorite band because of you and Comfortably Numb was your favorite Pink Floyd song.
“There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship, smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying
When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown
The dream is gone
I have become comfortably numb” Pink Floyd

I think and pray for you, Vinny and Karen every day and I miss you.
