It's just not fair sometimes but hang on to the memories and strive to move forward each and every day. My thoughts and prayers are with you sweet Lezlee. Rhonda Brown, December 30, 2018 Lezlee, It is rare to meet someone in the traveling world who stays with you. Barry was one of those. Wonderfully patient, patiently teaching, quietly resourceful, deeply knowledgeable, a comforting presence, your husband always was a stabilizing force on many a night of call, compassionate to each and every patient, and I was always more confident with him in each case. I regret that I didn't get to know both of you better, but am truly grateful for the time we had. Please know that you are remembered, prayed for, and loved, and that it will continue thru the coming weeks and months. Barry is sorely missed, and you and the family have my deepest sympathy.

May you draw comfort from our Heavenly Father, who comforts us during our sorrows with the scriptural promise by Christ Jesus, to resurrect those that have fallen asleep in death. (John 5:28,29). They shall suffer no more because all things will have passed. (Revelation 21:4,5) M. Rose , December 28, 2018 There are no words to express how sorry I am for your loss. You are in my prayers and God bless you and your family. Jaye Taylor, December 28, 2018 Ya I met Barry a few times through Corey and Whitney Loveless. Corey and his family are dearly close to me and my family. So all I can do is pray that God watches over you all through this time of heartfelt sorrow.
