Barry, Brenda and I had many good times playing together is the "ole days" at Grandpa & Grandma Quade's house. We kept all 3 grandma's on their toes. Now that I am 60, he was much too young to leave us. I know though that Heaven is the place we all are working towards. And Barry is there. Take Care Denise, Ryan, & Matt and families.
