You were the KINDEST, MOST GENEROUS, HELPUL, FULL OF OPTIMISM, HAPPY, FUNNIEST......and the list goes on, person that we have ever met!!!!! YOU WERE A TRUE GENTEMAN!!!!! You brought a rare energy to Stegna, with your presence and the summers will never be the same without! You were a highly charismatic person that gave joy to those around you! Our family is truly devasted that we won't hear your laugh or see your smile again. We were lucky enough to have met you dear Barry and to have created memories with you. Our children LOVED you DEEPLY so did EVERYONE at STEGNA! You were their other GRANDAD!!! It is truly comforting that you had a peaceful passing, as that is was you deserved! We wish we could've been there for your final "occassion" today, but maybe it's best that we just treasure our last time together, which was one was one full of jokes, love a feelings of happiness and plans for the future! We wish your lovely Dotty, the strength she needs to get through this difficult time, as deeply loved you and you definitely be missing from her life! You had a WONDERFUL, loving relationship and it was an honor to be with you on your special day! Your love was felt by those around you as you two had a special connection! IT WAS AN HONOR TO HAVE MET YOU BARRY FORD!!!!! WE THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the pleasure of being your friend/family!!!!! You were an EXTRAORDINARY person that one rarely meets, in their life time!!!! A paragraph cannot contain the feelings we are having because of your sudden passing.... We close, wishing your family and friends our deepest sympathies and would like to let them know they should be very proud for the husband, father, grandad, brother, uncle that they had!!!! HUGS AND KISSES BARRY and you always said "SEE YOU LATER SUNSHINE!!!!!!!!!XOXOXO Love always, Harriet-George, Evi, Mike, Tsambika and of course the also deeply distressed, with your passing, Tsambika and Charlie!!!
