The Group and John Barry Mathews
I am in the throes of creating a Picasa album to commemorate the passing of my good friend Barry in November, 2012. It will be an ongoing project designed to have a life of it's own by the time it is completed.
On December 15th, 2012, his family hosted a Commemorative Gathering in Mt. Holly, New Jersey which was more like a combination Wake, Shiva and Roast to Barry - we all came away from it with a satisfying feeling of closure.
Barry's family commissioned from cousin/artist Maureen Murray, a wonderful Sea Glass Necklace which they presented to me as a thank you. Totally unnecessary but totally appreciated by me!
