Be good, kind and supportive of each other during this period in your lives. Cherish the time you have together and love each other with the same love that Barry had for all of you. He'd want that!

Jenny and Family, Bup and I want you to know that through this difficult time there are old friends like us who care deeply for all of you. May you all find strength within yourselves and lean on others to help ease the pain. Jen it seems so long ago that we were cheerleaders together and I will always treasure those memories and now you must treasure the memories you have of your father. You now have a very special angel looking down upon all of you. Try and take comfort in that. With much love, caring and friendship, Love Tami and Bup. Hugs
