We are sad to hear about the passing of our neighbor. We have so many wonderful memories of Barry and Ruru stopping to say hello on their walks down the street. My dad, Harry, enjoyed them too. May his memory be eternal, Charles and Maria Hazangeles Grant.

I miss Barry very very much! He was always there for me to give me advice. Though I’ve only lived in Lancaster a few years, I felt like Barry was my best friend. I still see and hear his voice in my head, as though he was walking his precious RuRu down the street. I am shocked, that he is gone! Barry, Wanda and RuRu are the best of the best for neighbors!!!!
