Memories Timeline


  1. Barney assisted me with several creative projects over the years, from T-shirts to some high-profile items. His natural talents and genuine, friendly personality always made working with him easy and a pleasure (even in hectic situations). I hope he found peace of mind at Toledo Bend and that those who shared his personal life find peace of heart at this time in knowing he did make a difference. Godspeed Barney.
