    Barry was such an awesome person and having known him is a special memory for me. Always a kind spirit about him. Laughing and cutting up with everyone he met. That old yellow CTLS work truck & that hat is exactly the picture in my mind of him. I’m smiling just thinking of him.
    My thoughts and prays to family & friends.

    God Bless,

    Lisa Page (Richter) McGaugh and family

    Jinny and Family, Nancy and I want to express to you our most heartfelt sympathies to you at the news of Barry’s passing. I am his cousin (his mother, Mary, being my first cousin) and I have many good memories of the times that I spent with Barry and his family at the house on N. 27th in Waco. The writer of his obituary describes him well. We pray that you will feel strongly the love of family friends at this time of loss.

    Dearest Jinny and Mohan Family, Casey and I are very fortunate to have had the opportunity to share some very meaningful time with you and Barry . We often recollect those great memories with a great big smile. Casey looked up to Barry and cherished their friendship. We will miss his free spirited ways and that one of a kind quick witted humor that made Barry who we love and will always have that special place in our hearts as well as the hearts of many. May the healing of your broken hearts be painless. We love you.

    Uncle Barry was always the one person I could count on to be the same day in and day out. You and Aunt Jinny not only gave me food and shelter when i needed were so much more..we were family. Those words were a familiar sound for me growing up. Life is too short uncle berry and without a doubt you were taken too soon. Your already missed. We love you. Sabra
