I just heard of the passing of Barry. I am so very sorry for your loss. 11 years ago when I worked at Grassy Pond Water Company, I waited on Barry. He would come in when he started to build a new house. Hold onto your wonderful memories . They will help you get through the hard times. ❤️🙏🏻, Nita Phillips
