    Our heartfelt condolences to the Provost family on the loss of your loved one, our friend Barry. We met Barry shortly after we moved to the area only to find out he too, was a California transplant with a passion for riding motorcycles. Every time we ran into Barry, whether it was at the dentist or on his bike up in Cameron Park he was smiling and filled with life. Barry always kept a positive attitude, and was warm and friendly to all. We enjoyed riding motorcycles with Barry and will miss him. May the Lord bring comfort to your hearts in the warmth of your memories together,
