    Also have a little chuckle about the times you had and celebrate her life not mourn her passing away. Every time you close your eyes, she will be with you.

    only knew him by reading what he had to say here. he shared many fine thoughts and experiences with our ohana her on HT. while here on this earth i suspect he touched many lives. may he always be remembered as a friend to all.

    I didn't know Barry very well either, but the few posts of his that I recall were fun to read. He sounded like someone with a lot of interesting stories to tell.

    My condolences to my fellow HT'ers who are hurt by his loss

    Hmm. Barry died at the same age as my mom. Both too young.

    Unhappy Barry has died. We are bereft.

    This is my third attempt to eulogize my friend.

    I was almost complete when my spouse walked in and in my confusion I hit the wrong button. Everything was erased.

    As I was deep into blaming her, I accidentally hit esc and again it was all gone. Frustrating. Certainly not then or now her fault, though I think she will not forgive my entreaty to 'Leave me alone!"

    We knew him as Barry, though others knew him as combinations of:
    Steven, Paul, George, Pablo, Armstrong, Wainright.

    He told me he was with the Brit Navy,and it is not unlikely that he was in special Ops.
    His Liverpool pals alluded that he had a weakness for brandy, when I was with him he drank only Stella Artois, as we gulped Guinnesses.

    One night in a pub he went into a tonic-clonic seizure. Psychogenic seizures are not uncommon in combat veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress. We took him home. Told him to get some specific help.

    It's not unlikely he seized while coming down (or up) the stairs,,,,,,, and fell he rest of the way.

    BARRY! Or whomever you were, or are, you were a good friend. If I can, I will travel over and try to find you, for closure and aloha.
    Watch for me.

    This is so sad.

    As I am in Liverpool, I will see if the undertakers named in the obituary are able to pass on a message to his family, who I'm sure will bevery moved by all your tributes. It looks like the service was some time ago, so I'm not sure if flowers are right at this stage. Must be very hard for them, facing Christmas.

    Thank you for the effort, Betsey. I hope they will take some small solace in the fact that he touched the lives of many people he would never meet.

    I've sent a letter to his relatives, giving them the link to this thread, c/o the funeral services company mentioned. I hope it makes it, as he seems to have travelled under a few nommes de plumes. What a colourful personality!

    There's a poem written in his memory on the Yo Liverpool forum.

    Didn't Barry post a photo on HT of him playing guitar on stage with, among others, one of the Beatles (Paul?)?

    Indeed he did, in the "Have you met anyone famous" thread.

    Strange thing though, is he posted it at least 3 times: once in November, 08, and twice in Jan 09. I think Barry was having problems with memory, as I have also had (have). It would go along with stories he told me about being in the Brit Military, and with having psychogenic seizures caused by combat stress (which I witnessed when we visited, and which I have had as well). It's something that's more common than you would think, but people don't like to talk about it. Seizures have a stigma to them.

    Additionally, we were both born in July 1947, I'm pretty sure. Funny.

    He never mentioned being a rocker when we met in London - I just guess we had too many other things to talk about.

    Yes, it was Paul - at a Buddy Holley remembrance concert. Paul seemed pretty friendly with Barry - as if they were old friends.

    Both lads from Liverpool, why not?

    I was only with him for two days in London. We tried to meet up in Dublin, but he lost the name of our hotel and didn't say where he was staying. We looked for him.

    Finally in London we connected. I forget how. He was an amazing person. We all immediately felt as if we had known each other all our lives.

    He had an amazing and interesting life, and most of it will remain unknown or just guessed at by us.

    Not that you were enamored, to be sure...

    But we all certainly were. And still are.
