Dave. 2019. Last weekend your brother Phillip was buried. We lost him to a massive heart attack. He fought on for another two months, long enough to see his new grandchild. But you know that now. Only one not with you now is Alan. Bobby Joe Gibson has passed. Dennis Murphy has passed. Bill Guess has passed. Rex Perry has passed. I messaged your nephew Kaleb last week. He is all Barnett. You would be proud. Still miss your laugh and great sense of humor.
