As the Great grandson of the man who took your life, my family has the utmost respect for you and your family. My grandmother was asleep on the porch with her sister the night of the incident and took the rifle from her deceased father notifying officer Barlow that he was dead. It impacted hers and her 3 brothers and younger sisters life greatly. She did however end up marrying a Lindsay Police Officer. So, life is strange. I would like to mention the people of Lindsay at that time in history and the generosity and kindness they showed officer Barlows and even my family. A total of 13 children lost their fathers because of that event and during the depression. The citizens of Lindsay rallied and took care of both families as they would see eachother from time to time. Im not sure of the struggles Officer Barlows family endured but, as a living decendant I would like to apologize and wish nothing but the best for officers Barlows extended family. It was always a wish of my grandmothers to express that to the family but, she never had the chance.
