Lori and family:
Sending prayers for you at this time. Barry was my 7th grade sweetheart and was the kindest young man ever! He was great at basketball and loved my Mother's chocolate cake. I have so many fond memories of him and am happy he found you and had a good life. May his love always hold you close.
