Barry had such joie de vivre, it's impossible to imagine a world without him.
He lived a short life, but a good-ending one--I can only hope the last couple of weeks of my life are filled with the kind of joy and life he had in his last couple of weeks, from high school class reunions and Getaways to Press Room shanty sings. He was a joy to talk with, a joy to listen to, a joy to know. In my head, on my private memory channel, I'm listening to him singing "Sioux Indians," at the 2008 Getaway.

I'll sing you a song, though it may be a sad one,
Of trials and troubles and where first begun;
I left my dear fam'ly, my friends and my home,
To cross the wide mountains and deserts to roam.

--Charlie
