A TTITUDE 

Barry called it P-ma.  He was the most positive person you may have ever met.  Barry felt that if you believe something it could happen.  He never saw the negative side of anything.  He would just say, “P-ma.”  Our entire family and our friends know about Barry’s always positive attitude.  If you asked him how he was doing, he would always say, “Top of the Ladder,”  “Great,” “Pretty wonderful.”  To Barry, everything was pretty okay.  There is a sign on the front of his truck that says, “Ain’t Life Grand.”  He never lived his life without P-ma and taught us to always see the glass as half-full.  What a beautiful example of living he set for us all!
