    Dear Mr. and Mrs Kliwinski and the whole family, I just received the tragic news on Barry’s passing. My prayers of comfort and peace are with you all. David told me of some of Barry’s adult achievements and work. You all have a lot to be proud of. My memories of Barry are from childhood of course. I remember how much joy he brought to your family when he came along. I remember all of us neighbor kids surrounding him in the little, inflatable pool under the old apple tree near old man Burdette’s property and Mrs. Kliwinski’s daily venture out to bring us Kool-aid and snacks. You all were so hospitable to all the neighborhood kids and I remember that. The memories are still rich and I’m grateful to have had you all for neighbors. God Bless you all! Love, Frank Palcic

  7. I met Barry during Navy AOCS training in Pensacola, FL. He was a great member of our class 04-92. I am proud to have served with Barry, may he rest in peace. I am so sorry for your loss.
