CPL Barleycorn,

I was only 9 years old when you went before us. I was brought to this page today because Carol was able to help me on the phone today with a case I am working on and told me about you. I could tell she was very proud to call you her husband and with the other posts on this page it sounds like you were an outstanding officer and a very loved member of your agency. Thank you for your service and may God shine his light on your family.
