A Death and A Birth

My condolences to the family and friends of Neil Barry. Neil was a fellow parishioner at Church of the Angels. He had a 6 year struggle with pancreatic cancer. Neil was an avid 49ers fan, and after church we’d stand on the sunny patio and talk football. He wore these sunglasses:

Still, I managed to take Neil seriously. RIP, Neil. Your 49ers just beat my father’s Redskins, 27-24.

Welcome to Navah, daughter of Dave (Pa Kettle) and E, and sister of Ronen.

I was honored to be there just after Navah made her grand entrance. My role was to keep an eye on Ronen, who is one of the world’s smartest three year-olds. Ronen said, “I’m going to draw a beautiful picture for the baby. I’m going to draw a baseball diamond!” (Sadly, he will grow up a Mets fan, but some things can’t be helped.)

Happy Birthday, Navah!

  1. I think this is the Neil Barry that I knew. He was a consultant to us at the MPAA for years, and one helluva guy. A great person. He was married to Rebecca? And I knew of his struggle with pancreatic cancer in the early phases when first diagnosed. Can you confirm his wife’s name, that should confirm it for me. A couple of mutual friends were just asking about him. — thanks
