Message: Having known Barry from almost the very beginning, Sheila and I want to salute this valiant young man for his indomnitable spirit, his stalwart fight against so many odds, and his bright outlook on life. We remember well the mentoring he did of our grandson, Ari, who had major difficulties that only someone like Barry could appreciate and help. May his memory be for a blessing for his parents, his siblings, and all the family and friends who have loved him these many years.

Message: Barry was the bravest, most courageous person I've ever met who touched everyone he came in contact with. Barry exemplified the saying, "It's not that you get what you want but want what you get". We will miss him dearly. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Maureen, we love you !

Message: Maureen, Art, Rita, Bruce, Bonnie and the rest of the family. This is incredibly sad news for all of us that knew and loved Barry. For me my very first memory of Barry was in 1970 when I moved to West Hartford and enrolled at King Philipp Jr. High. Along came Barry flying down the hall way in his wheelchair screaming 'Move or be moved'. It was incredible! We became close friends all through our junior high and high school years. The adventures we went on surely would have added plenty of gray hairs to Art and Rita if they ever knew! Somehow we all survived our youth. No matter what our individual religious views are I know in my heart that Barry and Caesar have had a great reunion and are on their way to all new adventures in the next world. Well done Barry, you lived your life to the fullest. Someday we shall surely meet again. Dan Stadtlander

Message: Dear Maureen- I was so sorry to learn of Barry's death, and my heart goes out to you during this difficult time. I am sorry I didn't know Barry better, but I feel that I got to know him through you. Despite being confined to a wheelchair, Barry lived a very full life. I hope you are comforted by knowing that Barry's life was greatly enhanced by your steadfast care and dedication. As a mutual friend of ours said when she learned of Barry's decline, your care enabled Barry to enjoy a longer and better quality of life than he would have had without you. I wholeheartedly agree. I pray that you can feel God's love -- and the love of your family and friends -- and that this love will uphold you and comfort you during this very painful time. May you have many wonderful memories of Barry, and of your years together, and may Barry rest in peace.... Valerie and I send you our deepest condolences. Blessings of comfort- Jay

Message: Dear Maurine and family, We are diminished tonight, and every night hence forth, with the loss of our good friend. Thank you, Barry, for handing us the flame. We will carry it forward proudly. Barry has been a quiet and powerful influence in our lives. His friendship, strong and enduring. Life, exciting in his wake. From his initial "come on along" sales pitch, and the first Winners On Wheels tennis ball shagged, through the Elvis Costumes, 'big' white snake in the park, Jonathan's Dream Playground, "the ambassador" and friends in (on) and under water, computers, college kids on a sunday morning, dating, and a marriage now in double digit years, Barry has been there for us. His talent for breaking down barriers and connecting with strangers was a gift we were witness to. Thank you for enriching our days. Thanks for sharing your kids and your life with us. Your talents were heaven sent. He was one of the strongest men we have ever known. Love burns bright, Phil + Lucy
