    Jody and Family,
    I just read of Barry’s death. We were very close friends in the mid 1970s. I got him his first job at Broyhill and we worked as a team for a year. Barry followed our band called Kentucky. He was a groomsman in my wedding. I loved Paula and Barry and gave you Jody my blue drum set when you were a little guy. I went into the gospel ministry living all over NC. Sorry I lost touch with Barry. Praying for you.
