Someone you love for surely you wouldn't shoot. Whether you love someone or not why does it have to ever get to that point?

He obviously was a very sick person mentally who went untreated for a long time with a mental illness. It's crazy how far a disease of the mind can take you. I am so sorry for all of the victims and their families.

Its terrible all the way around, all three knew each other and now have to deal with this, its tragic for the two survivors as well as Barry's family and extended family. If you dont know these folks or know Lovettsville keep to yourself, as they say everyone has an opinion as well as an _ _ _ _ _ _ _.

Wow, SOS, you're right. The world is filled with trash, and it seems like most of it is coming out of Sierra Vista, AZ, from your mouth.
Who do you think you are to say these things and judge these people? I hope you never have to stand in judgment yourself for the things you've written.

No Barry was not a sick person. This is what happens sometimes when the person you love betrays you, you just snap. All rational thinking goes out the window and RAW EMOTION takes over. Barry was a wonderful man and always HAD a smile and could always make us smile. I just found out and am in shock over this. Prayers go out to all the families and the world will be a little less bright without him here.
