Dear Nora and family,
I was so very sorry to hear about Barry's passing . I will always remember his warm smile and sunny disposition. I hope that I will see you this summer in Southampton. Hang on tight to your memories and stay close to friends and family for comfort.

Hi Nora:
I was saddened to hear about the passing of Barry. It has been a difficult time for you and your family. I remember the golf days we enjoyed together in Southampton and the comradery at the Cameron McLeod Tournament. We haven't seen each other recently due to advancing years but I have many fond memories of his smile and friendly disposition. Hopefully our paths will still cross when you visit Southampton again. Nancy sends her condolences also.

Regards, Tim Andersen

Barry was in the office next to me for many years, and we were good friends. He loved to regale me with stories of his times in Africa. I don't have a photo of Barry on his own, but he was always in for a party. Doug and I are recalling lots of good tales. We send our regrets to you, Nora.
