Comments:

I have worked in advertising pretty much all my life. For the past 15 years I have been employed by Erwin and Sons Direct Imports. We manufacture high-end outdoor furnishings. My greatest pleasure and achievement in life has been raising two wonderful sons. Michael is an MD/PhD, currently in his third year of residency at VCU in Richmond VA. Michael is married to Shari Lane, a Special Education teacher. Daniel is self-employed in the area of finance/commercial real estate in Atlanta. Rick and I have only one furkid left at this time, Peanut, our rescue Jack Russell, who is 15. We just recently downsized into a LARGER home ... don't know how that happened ... in Woodstock, GA. We are hoping to do some traveling and still waiting for a grandbaby!

School Story:

Cherished memories: Besides football, pep rallies and Mr. Derthick, my favorite memory was knocking Mr. Walton out cold when he wouldn't let me out of biology class. My motivation was that if I hadn't gotten out of there, I would have been late to Mr. Wills' math class and had 10 points deducted off my grade. Ten points or not, slapping Mr. Walton was one of the most satisfying events of my high school career! I thank Mr. Derthick every day of my life for saving me from that crazed lunatic who chased me around Mr. Derthick's office with his pair of newly broken glasses and a giant red handprint on his face.

What can you say about Steve Edenfield? He was handsome, cool, and intelligent, yet he extended friendship to everyone, including those not so cool, handsome or smart. He was witty yet kind, and had a path to follow all his own. I spent a few hours with him at Shelley Freedman Berson's wedding several years ago, and found Steve to still be the same wonderful human he was in high school. I will always remember his twinkling blue eyes and dimpled, devilish smile. Rest in peace, Steve.

So sorry to hear this news. Barry was so bright, and such a genuinely nice person. My heart goes out to Linda, his children and the rest of his family. May his memory be for a blessing.
