Dear Barry Patterson Family,

Our sincere and deepest sympathy with the loss of your beloved Barry. We all have wonderful and sweet memories of Barry during our school years. Barry was so kind, very intelligent, handsome, helpful, a very caring person, lots of fun, hard worker, and loved his family very much. Barry loved class reunions and participated on the committees for DHS 1956 class reunions and the Fabulous 50's class reunions.

May the sweet memories of Barry always comfort you and your family. The world has lost a wonderful man.

Take care and you all are in our thoughts and prayers during this very sad time for you and your family.

Love and Sympathy,
Josephine A. Bentz, Classmate
and DHD 1956 Class
